Child Health

Participate in Research is designed to connect potential volunteers with open research studies. We are looking for volunteers just like you to help answer important questions about child health. This page lists child health studies that may apply to you or someone you know. If you find a study that you’d like to participate in, you can contact the study team with questions or to volunteer. Join us to improve the health of others.

Active Studies

  • No More Needles to Prevent HAE Attacks? We need you to help us find out. Right now, patients are being enrolled in the APeX-S study, a worldwide clinical research study to investigate the long-term safety of an investigational oral medication to prevent hereditary angioedema (HAE)......

  • Research in the fields of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and neuroscience are typically done in parallel. This means that we know very little about the brain basis of repetitive/stereotypic behaviors or of developmental delay more generally. This study is doing crossover work, to see if......

  • The WONDER research study uses technology and behavioral assessments to monitor and map social brain development. The study consists of 5 in-person study visits during the first three years of life at our research lab in Seattle. During visits, researchers will record brain activity and......

  • The University of Washington Institute for Language and Brain Sciences is recruiting hard of hearing infants between 2 and 12 months of age who have a mild-to-moderate hearing loss. This study looks at the effects of hearing loss on early brain development and learning. The......

  • The Infant Brain Imaging Study, or IBIS, is a research study of brain development in infants and children. The IBIS Network is a consortium of researchers across North America, including the University of Washington, that work together to discover early changes in brain development of......

  • The Infant Brain Imaging Study, or IBIS, is a research study of brain development in infants and children with autism. The IBIS Network is a consortium of researchers across North America, including the University of Washington Autism Center, that work together to discover early changes......

  • University of Washington researchers, led by Natalia Kleinhans, are recruiting pregnant participants who have not used marijuana during their first trimester and those who have used marijuana during their first trimester for a new study of prenatal development. Participants are not required to use marijuana......

  • Our team is the NeuDLL (Neurodevelopmental Disorders Language & Learning) Lab in the UW Speech & Hearing Department. We are seeking families to participate in research related to spoken language in children with and without developmental disorders. The purpose of our research is to better......

  • In this research study, we would like to learn more about how brain activity relates to attention, impulse control, and behavior regulation. Participation in this study involves a single, 3-hour visit to the Center on Human Development and Disability (CHDD) on the UW Medical Center......

  • This is a community-based, mixed-methods study looking at the impacts of adapted ride-on car use as a form of early powered mobility and socialization in children with cerebral palsy or developmental delay and their families. The study spans 12 months and involves intermittent contact with......

  • GAPPS is a network of hospitals and women working together to gather information and specimens to see how pregnancy affects maternal and child health after delivery. The GAPPS repository stores health information and samples that are given for research by women at various stages of......
