Clinical and behavioral phenotyping of autism and related disorders  

The Pediatrics Developmental Neuroscience research program aims to characterize the behavioral and biological manifestations of subtypes of autism in an effort to identify their etiologies and develop more effective treatments. The objective is to determine if there are distinct groups of individuals within the spectrum of autistic disorders that share common profiles of biological and/or behavioral characteristics.
