Research Team

BYU and its partner institutions have gathered researchers across disciplines to work together in the search for autism answers. Autism research at BYU benefits from well-established scientific investigators and new faculty bringing expertise and research partners to BYU from around the United States and other countries. We are looking at the entire spectrum of autism science and the lifespan of individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
