Genetic epidemiology of autism spectrum disorders  

The research proposal includes three specific aims relating directly to the training goals: 1) to maintain and expand the Korean epidemiological cohort (in an enthinically and genetically disctinictive Korean population) already established as a part of an Autism Speaks-funded grant, 2) to collect comprehensive phenotype data on the Korean sample, and 3) to test 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. This proposal takes an advantages of a rare opportunity to enrich an ongoing study while supporting an expansion of the applicant's research skills and abilities.
