Creating the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Research Network  

This multi-center scientific and clinical research network promotes coordinated research activities and addresses health issues for, but not limited to, children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. Furthermore, it will build a developmental behavioral pediatric research infrastructure that supports multidisciplinary research, focuses on the translation of research to practice and provides the environment in which to train a new generation of developmental behavioral pediatric researchers.
