AXYS 2021 Virtual Family Conference

June 21-June 27, 2021 | Zoom

Join us on Zoom to attend the AXYS 2021 Virtual Family Conference. The BGAP Study is thrilled to be participating again this year. If you have any questions about the study, you can find us in a few sessions. We are also presenting preliminary findings from year 1 BGAP data. Swing by the virtual sessions to learn more!


Year 2 Testing Begins

We have officially begun year 2 testing! For Stanford participants, we are completing all behavioral questionnaires and most of our cognitive assessments remotely via Zoom video sessions. Families will then be asked to attend an abbreviated in-person visit to complete the MRI scan, blood draw, and pubertal exam. Families may also be asked to visit a local testing center to complete the blood draw. Traveling families will be invited for testing on Stanford's campus when it is feasible to travel. We are looking forward to working with all of our families again this year and are so appreciative of everyone's time and flexibility during these unprecedented times.

Remote Testing Options

Our team has been working hard to advance our knowledge of puberty and its effects on brain and behavioral development during these challenging times. To reduce the amount of in person time required to complete our study, we now complete many of our assessments, including behavioral questionnaires and cognitive tests, remotely via video visits. Please help us stay productive while making your contribution to scientific progress from the comfort of your own home! To get involved, click here to contact us and begin the eligibility screening process. Thank you so much and best wishes for you and your family!
