General objectives - The overall goal of the project is to create a highly competitive network of researchers studying autism in a multidisciplinary way, ultimately aiming to implement innovative research programs and diagnostic tools for autism research.
Overall vision - A multidisciplinary approach will be used to implement research programs aimed at unraveling the biological bases of autism and to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies:
- identification of novel genetic variants associated to autism;
- development of novel behavioral and pharmacological therapies through clinical and animal model studies;
- identification of early diagnostic markers through behavioral genetic studies on patients and animal models.
