AGRE Steering Committee

The AGRE Steering Committee for the AGRE project is made up of active leaders in the scientific community, representing fields which are highly relevant to autism research such as neurodevelopmental biology, neurology, neuroimaging, learning and cognition, immunology, genetics, biochemistry, and pharmacology. They have all made outstanding contributions in their own fields and we are proud to have them turning their talents towards autism.
