  1. Resource Description
    The Center for Autism Research coordinates and supports research into the causes of the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). The Center's programs of research are predicated on the belief that effective treatments will follow from a better understanding of causal mechanisms. Led by Robert T. Schultz, PhD, in collaboration with other Children's Hospital faculty, the CAR establishes a broad-based research program aimed at fundamental discoveries into causes of the ASDs. The Center establishes programs of research focused on developmental, neurobiological and genetic mechanisms of the ASDs, with a particular emphasis on understanding the individual differences across the spectrum. Affiliated faculty also engage in research to evaluate the current standard of care for patients with an ASD and to test the effectiveness of promising new treatments.
