Center for Autism Research and Translation (CART)

The mission of the UC Irvine Center for Autism Research and Translation (CART) is to develop the first transformative treatment of autism within five years.

To achieve that goal, we are coupling cutting-edge discovery and top-notch research methodologies with preclinical and clinical testing of new drugs and diagnostics. The focus is on creating state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for individuals with autism.

These approaches will improve lives and resolve the burden of autism for the child, the family, the community in Southern California and eventually will help everyone on the autism spectrum.
