Gender Development & TransYouth Project

Our research lab is conducting several studies about gender development in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood. The TransYouth Project is our largest project and is the first large-scale, national, longitudinal study of socially-transitioned transgender children to date. For more about the TransYouth Project check out our Frequently Asked Questions about the TYP. We are following a cohort of about 300 children from 45 U.S. states and several Canadian provinces for 20 years.

In addition to that project, we are recruiting new families for new studies on gender development both in the New Jersey region and nationally. Right now we are recruiting (1) children and teens who have diverse gender expressions and/or identities, (2) children, teens, and young adults with variations in sex development (e.g., intersex, with a DSD, with CAH), and (3) children, teens, and young adults that are not gender diverse and do not have a variation in sex development to be a control/comparison group.
