Current Research

  • Rare Disease Clinical Research Consortium for New Therapeutics and New Diagnostics. D. Glaze, PI - Rett Syndrome Project. The goals of this project are to establish Rare Disease Clinical Research Centers and to study three rare diseases: Rett, Angelman and Prader-Willi syndromes.

The goals of the Autism Treatment Network are as follows: (1) to improve medical treatment of children and adolescents with autism by establishing standards of clinical care based on shared clinical practice and evidence from clinical outcomes; (2) to etablishing these standards of care for autism in the medical community through open research collaboration, trainee mentorship, and conferences; (3) to contribute to a national database of clinical information that will inform best practices and contribute to efforts to improve insurance reimbursements for autism care.
  • Autism Intervention Research Network for Physical Health. D. Treadwell-Deering, PI; D. Glaze, Co-Investigator. The major goal of this study is to expand a clinical research network devoted to studying and improving care for physical health conditions among children with autism.
