The core of autism research at Mount Sinai is the Seaver Autism Center of Research and Treatment. The Center features a multidisciplinary team of experts that uses genetics, molecular biology, model systems, neuroimaging, and experimental therapeutics, including behavioral and pharmacological interventions, to understand the causes of autism and related conditions. These studies lead to novel drug targets and better treatments.
The Seaver Autism Center works closely with the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences on novel diagnostic methods and their use in genetic studies. The Seaver Autism Center includes an extensive clinical training program in autism spectrum disorders, together with the Medical School, Residency Program and Neuropsychology Training Program in the Department of Psychiatry.
