Queen’s Partnership on NeuroDevelopment (Q‑POND) Studies Registry

What is Q-POND?

We are a group of researchers and clinicians at Queen’s University (Kingston, ON) working in collaboration with many other researchers and clinicians at various research institutions across Canada studying neurodevelopmental disorders and psychiatric conditions.

What does Q-POND do?

Our team is currently recruiting participants for several different studies. Some of these studies include genetics, gut-brain health, a comprehensive study through the POND network (www.pond-network.ca), and clinical trial for Autism Spectrum Disorders. Some studies are done locally in Kingston Ontario, but other studies are available to anyone in Canada. We are recruit participants of all ages both with and without Neurodevelopmental Disorders (such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Intellectual Disability and some related genetic syndromes such as Down Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, and Rett Syndrome) as well as individuals with Anxiety and Depression. This research group has been actively recruiting for various studies for Autism Spectrum Disorder since 2001 (www.AutismResearch.com ) but now has the opportunity to expand their studies to these additional conditions.
