Description

Description

This grant will enable the establishment of a Center for Genomic and Phenomic Studies in Autism involving the University of Southern California (USC), Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE), MIND Institute/University of California (UC) - Davis, University of Michigan, Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), and E.K. Shriver Center/University of Massachusetts Medical School. The Center brings together a multidisciplinary team of investigators with considerable expertise in the genomics and phenomics of autism in multiplex pedigrees, including nationwide family ascertainment and screening, high throughput diagnostics, state-of-the-art clinical evaluation and structural interviewing, cognitive and behavioral evaluations, 3D craniofacial morphology, cytogenetics, DNA microarrays, immunology, structural brain imaging, electrophysiology, and environmental risk assessment. The ultimate goal of the Center will be to facilitate genetic and environmental studies on autism, thereby improving diagnosis, accelerating understanding of its etiology and pathophysiology, and facilitating discovery of new therapeutics.
