Research Program Areas
The Autism Institute is a multidisciplinary, university-level research institute focused on public health science approaches to autism spectrum disorders.
The Autism Institute is comprised of Research Program Areas and Cores. The Cores support autism spectrum disorder research initiatives within the Program Areas and throughout the rest of the University. The Cores also collaborate with researchers and other partners outside of Drexel on initiatives that are consistent with the Autism Institute's mission. Oversight for the Autism Institute is through its Executive Council and the Director receives input from an Advisory Board and a Community Working Group.
