Dr. Marsha R. Mailick is the Director of the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison). She is the principal investigator of the Waisman Center's Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Core Grant, awarded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The focus of Dr. Mailick’s research is on the life course trajectory of developmental disabilities. She is interested in how the behavioral phenotype of specific developmental disabilities, including autism, fragile X syndrome, and Down syndrome, changes during adolescence, adulthood, and old age.  In addition, she studies how the family environment affects the development of individuals with disabilities during these stages of life, and reciprocally how parents and siblings of individuals with disabilities are affected.
