Center for Autism Research growth highlighted in Inquirer
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Autism Research (CAR) was highlighted in a front page article in the Inquirer this Sunday, focusing on Philadelphia’s growth into a hub for autism research. In less than four years, CAR has grown to include about 100 researchers and staff running two dozen research studies.
The article follows the experience of Yocum family, who brought their 18-month-old daughter, Amanda to CHOP for a language-learning study when she was diagnosed with autism in 2009. The family has continued to rely on CAR research and programs for guidance and support throughout Amanda’s childhood. Now the Yocums have another baby girl, and all four of them are enrolled in Philadelphia-based autism studies to try to understand environmental and genetic triggers for autism.
