ABCD Study at the Medical University of South Carolina

The Medical University of South Carolina is excited to be one of 21 institutions nationwide that will recruit families to participate in the ABCD Study. Appointments will be completed at the Center for Biomedical Imaging (30 Bee Street, Charleston, SC 29403). Free parking is available in front of the building.

We hope that this study will expand our understanding of how children grow and increase our ability to promote healthy development throughout adolescence. However, none of this can happen without the help of our participants. We are recruiting children between the ages of 9 and 10. If you or your child are interested in participating in the ABCD Study at the Medical University of South Carolina, or want to request information, please call (843) 792-1999 or email us at
