The Dissecting the Genetic Contributions to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (DiG FASD) study is researching
how genetics explains why people with prenatal alcohol exposure or FASD are different from each other.

  • We pay all costs, including shipping.
  • We keep your information, pictures, and DNA secure and confidential and use them for research purposes only.
  • We will send you a newsletter with updates on the study’s findings.

Why Should I Participate?

  • You can help us understand why people with prenatal alcohol exposure are different from each other.
