Home > Local Events > SPARK for Autism Coming To Georgetown & Greenville

SPARK for Autism at the Medical University of South Carolina is collecting saliva as a source of DNA from thousands of individuals with autism and their families as a part of the nation’s largest genetic autism study. The goal of this study is to transform our understanding of autism and help improve the lives of individuals affected by autism and their families.  The SPARK team will be traveling from Charleston to Georgetown on June 27th and to Greenville on June 29th to collect DNA samples from families interested in participating. Participation takes about 30 minutes per family and participation of both biological parents is requested as well as the individual with autism.  Siblings are invited to participate as well.  Families will receive a $50 Amazon e-card for their participation!
