Azrieli Centre for Autism Research (ACAR): Transforming autism research, training and care -- improving lives via Open Science

A unique interdisciplinary approach

We follow an integrated clinical research model that empowers autistic individuals and their families to take part in research that directly benefits them. 


Together, our network ensures consistent and reliable care by:
  • streamlining the transition from pediatric to adult services 
  • improving patient health and well-being by addressing co-occurring conditions and potentially finding causes that have broader implications
  • building clinical capacity in our healthcare system through our professional development and training opportunities, as well as case consultations. 


Some examples of research studies underway include:
