The Seaver Autism Center for Research and Treatment
The Seaver Autism Center for Research and Treatment at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai leads progressive research studies and provides personalized care to individuals with autism and related rare disorders associated with autism. Working together with families, the Seaver Autism Center takes a genetics first approach to identify the causes of autism and advance effective treatments.
Our Center is comprised of experts in five core areas of expertise: epidemiology, pre-clinical and clinical research, drug discovery and development, and administration. The diverse, multidisciplinary staff works closely together to translate discoveries in basic scientific research from the laboratory to our participants and the community.
Founded in 1993, through the generous support of the Beatrice and Samuel A. Seaver Foundation, the Seaver Autism Center provides opportunities to participate in research studies that seek to better understand the causes of autism and improve treatment options. All services in research studies are provided without charge to eligible participants and include gold standard diagnostic assessments.
