NIH awards grant to Caltech and University of Minnesota

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has awarded a 5-year grant to study longitudinal development in infants and toddlers with agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC). This project, titled “Early Development in Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum” marks the first NIH-supported behavioral study of ACC in the 21st century. The project is led by Dr. Lynn Paul at Caltech and Dr. Jed Elison at the University of Minnesota. The project involves three components:

  • Parent-reports about each child’s development and well-being, collected at 5 time-points via online surveys and phone interviews
  • Direct behavioral assessment at University of Minnesota (available for some participants in North America)
  • Collection of saliva samples for future genetic studies.
