Scientific American – Autism Risk-Factors Database Could Aid in Epidemiological Studies of the Disorder
A new database pools health registry data from seven countries, dramatically boosting sample sizes for epidemiological studies of autism. The virtual tool, dubbed the International Collaboration for Autism Registry Epidemiology (iCARE), was built by an international consortium of researchers, and allows them to effectively compare data across populations. “iCARE can be analyzed on an iPad at Starbucks anywhere around the globe, and it’s safe and secure,” said Avraham Reichenberg, Professor of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a member of the consortium.
