UNC Autism Research Center

UNC Autism Research Center is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals on the Autism Spectrum and, as a leader in the field, stands poised to change the trajectory of autism care in North Carolina and beyond.

Our “cells-to-services” model brings together researchers and clinicians from across Carolina’s campus to solve Autism Spectrum Disorder’s most intractable problems. Through the power of collaboration, we will accelerate research discovery and its application, providing personalized interventions that lead to better outcomes for individuals of all ages.

Our fundraising goal is $10 million in support of the interdisciplinary research we are pursuing across the spectrum. Please join us in the next steps for all kind.
