M3: Microbiome, Metabolites and the Mind Study

Microbiome, Metabolites, and the Mind
Our project aims to unravel the connection between bacteria in the gut and behavior. Specifically, we’re studying the impact of microbiome and genome variation on ASD phenotype with a crowdsourced approach on families with at least two children, one diagnosed with autism and a neurotypical sibling within 2 years of each other. We believe that this design will allow us to overcome the limitations of the previous studies and provide a better understanding of the mechanisms involved.

Our Question:

What is the connection between bacteria in the gut and behavior, specifically in children with autism?

How you can help

Answer a few short questions, upload a home video of your child, and send us samples by mail.

Here are the steps

Microbiome, Metabolites, and the Mind flyer steps

All of your participation is done from the security and comfort of your own home, all you have to do is complete a few easy steps and your contributions will go directly to advances in autism research!

In this study, we ask you to complete:

1) this questionnaire, click here to start the questionnaire now
2) upload a home video (though, optional)
3) collect one saliva sample and ship it back to us (we cover costs)
4) four stool samples (1 per week over 3 weeks and one extra one to be frozen) (we cover costs)
5) and respond to a very short online questionnaire each week after you collect your samples (you will be able to use this link, your email, and a unique code to access the additional surveys).

M3 is funded by NIH and is a collaborative project between Stanford University and Second Genome Inc.
