Providing core support for Jr. faculty for translational research in ASD  

The UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment has identified a need to expand infant research capabilities and to develop a program in electrophysiology. This grant will support hiring and providing an appropriate start-up package for a clinician scientist as a tenure-track faculty at UCLA and to develop resources to support research projects within the context of a specialized new biomedical research core center. This will enable expansion of early infant research and add expertise in electrophysiologic methods for the study of infants and young, minimally verbal children. This is especially important given that quantifiable, electrophysiologic brain phenotypes may help to understand some of the neurobiology and the heterogeneity in autism. Project Status
