The Penn State Personalized Research for Innovation, Discovery, and Education (PRIDE) Program.

The Penn State Personalized Research for Innovation, Discovery, and Education (PRIDE) Program. The aims of the PRIDE Program are to: 1. Create a centralized Biorepository using extra blood obtained from a clinically-ordered blood draw, leftover biospecimens that are removed during medically indicated procedures or a saliva sample from consented participants that do not have clinically ordered blood draws or a medical procedure. 2. Construct a dynamic database of health and related data (via both manual and electronic abstraction) from consented participants. 3. Establish a mechanism for approving use of the banked biospecimens for future research.

Families Being Supportive Together

This project studies the different ways that caregivers respond to their teens when teens ask for support. The study focuses on youth with and without a risk of developing depression and anxiety. We study how youth ask for help from their caregivers and how caregivers respond in their daily lives by observing family interactions at home. The ultimate goal of this study is to reveal how modern families support their teens and how communication among immediate family members can impact stress, mood, and mental health.

Early Childhood practitioner’s knowledge and attitudes regarding reporting child abuse/neglect: iLookOut- Phase II

Despite their daily interactions with young children, little research has been conducted into early childhood practitioners’ (ECPs’) knowledge of, and attitudes towards, reporting of child abuse/neglect. Researchers have developed an eLearning Module (iLook Out for Child Abuse) created to train and inform early childhood practitioners (ECPs). Study plans to recruit ECPs to take the learning program. The learner will be asked to answer questions before and after the learning program to help the study team evaluate the effectiveness, engagement, and usability of the program. This study is the second phase of a currently approved study- STUDY00000376.

The development of face processing in children and adolescents

Adolescence is a unique developmental period that prepares individuals for adulthood. We are studying the behavioral basis of this important time, particularly in terms of how adolescents understand and think about other people. To study this important developmental transition, we are inviting typically developing adolescents (15-17 yrs) to help us with this study for a one-time session lasting approximately 1.5 hours. Participants answer questionnaires about their social relationships (including friendships and romantic relationships) and play games of face recognition. Volunteers are compensated $10/hour for their time.

Raising a Child with T1D and Autism: Qualitative Thematic Analysis

We have utilized a previously completed forum and blog analysis conducted as STUDY00007977 to begin to identify to successes and challenges families raising a child with both T1D and autism experience. This study seeks to expand our knowledge through conducting interviews with families recruited both online and through the clinic. By using an Interview Guide created with our themes identified thus far, we will have a chance to expand on these themes through interviews, as well as hear from families that may not use the online community. We will recruit and interview families through the diabetes online community and through Penn State Hershey--6-8 of these families will have a child with optimal glycemic control and 6-8 of these families will have a child with suboptimal glycemic control. In addition to refining themes, this effort will help us assess the reliability, credibility, and validity of what was found via forum and blog analysis.
