Our very own Drs. Wendy Stone and Lisa Ibanez contributed to an article on the effects of the pandemic on ASD research studies, published recently in Autism Research. The article, titled “COVID-19 and Autism Research: Perspectives from Around the Globe,” speaks to the unique demands that researchers have faced as we all have adapted to these unprecedented circumstances. From genetic research to animal model work to early intervention studies (such as our lab’s!), autism research has been impacted on every scale. You can read the article here.
As the global autism research community comes together to understand the future implications of the pandemic on autistic people and their families, we’re so grateful for our participating families and partnering care providers who continue to make our research possible. Our research is powered by you!
