Pierce, Karen

Description

Description

The major aim of these studies is for successful identification of biological and behavioral features of autism at 12 months of age. In one study, to address the important question of immunological abnormality in autism early in life, state-of-the-art methods will be used to assay plasma levels of specific immune significant cytokines and growth factors. In the second study, to address important questions about early social interest and orienting abnormalities in autism, a quantitative experimental procedure for investigating social preference behavior and eye gaze patterns will be used.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 1LA. Identify behavioral and biological markers that separately, or in combination, accurately identify, before age 2, one or more subtypes of children at risk for developing ASD, and evaluate whether these risk markers or profiles can improve early identification through heightened developmental monitoring and screening by 2014. IACC Recommended Budget: $33,300,000 over 5 years.
