A collaborative approach

Scientists and doctors from Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and MIT have been working together to study the possible causes of ASD. We hope that our research will lead to earlier diagnosis, better treatment, and better outcomes overall for children and families affected by these disorders. We are optimistic that by bringing together the fields of neuroscience, psychology, bioinformatics and genetics, we will shed light on this enigmatic diagnosis.
