ABCD Study at Washington University in St. Louis
Washington University is one of 21 institutions nationwide that invited families to participate in the ABCD Study. Washington University recruited over 200 Missouri twin pairs and 200 non-twins from local school districts. We are following children from age 9 or 10 through their teen years. Families in the ABCD Study complete the majority of their assessments in our research suite in the CID Building (photo, bottom left), in a space specifically designed for children and families. The CID is at 4560 Clayton Avenue, St. Louis MO, 63110. The MRI part of the study will take place in the East Building , a world- renowned research imaging facility (photo, below right). The East Building is at 4525 Scott Avenue, St. Louis MO, 63110.
