INSTITUTE FOR AUTISM RESEARCH

Research Team

“Because the IAR is a truly collaborative team, we are proud of the strong relationships we maintain with all members. The IAR has dedicated resources and facilities that support the work of not only IAR faculty researchers, but also affiliated researchers and clinicians from other institutions and community agencies. These individuals bring diverse perspectives and expertise which results in novel approaches to research and treatment. While we are excited about the work this groups has accomplished, we are even more excited about what is yet to come”
