Collaborative Research Area on Biological Basis of Autism

Coordinator: Sara Jane Webb, Ph.D.

Steering Committee:

Zoran Brkanac, M.D.
Natalia Kleinhans, Ph.D.
Libin Xu, Ph.D.

This CRA will be addressing a range of biological causes and possible treatment options for Autism Spectrum Disorder. All levels of analysis are involved including research on genetic factors and corresponding biological pathways, electrophysiology and brain imaging studies, gene-environment interactions, and pharmacological treatments.
