Family with Twins Earn $380 for Half Day USC/CHLA Research Study!

Yang - posted on 10/18/2013 ( no moms have responded yet )




Dear Mothers of Twins!

Do you have twins who are between 12 to 16 years of age?

Have you ever wondered how genetics and the environment influence your child's brain development and behavior?

Help USC scientists learn!

This research study, conducted by Dr. Yaling Yang, involves taking pictures of your twins' brains using a non-invasive MRI, filling out a few surveys, and providing saliva samples.

Each of your twins will be paid $25 per hour and one parent/legal guardian will be paid $35 per hour (total will usually be about $380 per family). The family spends about half a day at CHLA.

Your twins may be eligible if they:
• are between 12 and 16 years of age,
• have no metal in their body (for example: surgical implants or permanent metal braces),
• do not have a neurological disorder, AND
• had a birth weight of over 3 pounds 5 ounces.

Participation in this research is voluntary; you and your children can stop participating at any time during your visit for whatever reason. You will be with your children throughout the visit. Any information you or your children provide will be kept strictly confidential.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Alina by emailing or by calling (323) 361-5268.
