Northwestern University’s Autism Research and Clinical Collaborative is an alliance created by a contingent of Northwestern University labs that all conduct studies involving autism.

By bringing together our still-growing knowledge of how autism is related to brain science, developmental connections, and early intervention, our mission is:

  • To work with individuals and families affected by autism in order to gain a deeper understanding of its causes and correlates;
  • To translate our study findings into groundbreaking treatments for people with autism * ; and
  • To provide students with rich opportunities for research experience, clinical learning, and mentorship.

* This website intentionally uses both the term “individuals/people with autism” and the term “autistic individuals/people,” to show respect for the differing perspectives existing within our culture today.
