Current Opportunities to Participate in Autism Research at UCLA

One of the fundamental goals of the UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment (CART) is to provide a strong, collaborative environment for both basic and applied autism research. The UCLA CART fosters integration of the clinical, imaging, genetic, and basic science research into autism for which UCLA is renowned. Scientists at the UCLA CART include leading experts in autism genetics, brain imaging, psychophysiology, psychopharmacology, developmental psychology, clinical assessment, intervention and epidemiology.
CART was established with an National Institutes of Health (NIH) STAART Center grant in 2003 and became an NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE) Center in 2007 and an ACE Network in 2008. Current ACE research projects, along with other CART and affiliated projects, are listed below. CART also awards pilot grant funds. See attachments below for details about STAART, ACE and CART Pilot grants.
