Please help!

The Cambridge Autism Research Centre carries out research studies into autism, Asperger Syndrome (AS) and other conditions on the autism spectrum. Many of the research projects at ARC would be impossible without the help of volunteers like you!

The mission of the ARC is to understand the biomedical causes of autism spectrum conditions, and develop new and validated methods for assessment and intervention. The ARC fosters collaboration between scientists in Cambridge University and outside, to accelerate this mission.
