Genetic epidemiology of autism spectrum disorders  

This is a mentored Research Scientist Career Development Award for research and training support. The research proposal includes: 1) maintaining and expanding the Korean epidemiological cohort (in an ethnically and genetically distinctive Korean population) already established as a part of an Autism Speaks-funded grant, 2) collecting comprehensive phenotype data on the Korean sample, and 3) testing the association of three candidate genes in a two-stage association study design with an internal replication sample, which will in turn allow for generation and testing of hypotheses about gene-environment interactions in ASD.
