Autism Research Training Program
The goal of the Autism Research Training Program (ART) is to recruit and train outstanding researchers in the field of autism, in disciplines such as genetics, brain imaging, epidemiology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology and others. Upon completing the program, trainees will be equipped with a broad interdisciplinary knowledge base, a rich repertoire of research skills, strong connections to a vigorous research community in special populations, and an ability to translate research into practice.
The Program is open to health professionals, doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and clinical fellows with a solid academic background in health care, science, social sciences, or humanities. The ART Program training activities include participation in a five-day intensive Summer School program, and mentorship from three ART faculty members – facilitated by emails, phone calls, and face-to-face meetings.
The deadline to apply for admission to the 2016 ART Program is April 4, 2016.
