Donate your time to help Autism Research!


Want to spit for science?

Researchers at Cambridge University are studying how hormones contribute to behaviour in people with and without autism.

If you are an adult with autism, a parent of child with autism, or an adult not affected by autism, you're valuable to us! We are looking for volunteers to give a saliva and/or blood sample to be analysed for hormones and DNA. Women must not be pregnant, breastfeeding, post-menopausal, or using hormonal contraception.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to come to Cambridge for a 25 minute study visit, and to fill in some online questionnaires.

Everyone who participates will be given £10 to say thank you, and we will reimburse your travel expenses.

Want to take part? Contact either, Alexa Pohl, at or Sarah Crockford, at Or you can ring us at +44 01223 746023; +44 01223 746030.
