Yale Social and Affective Neurodevelopment of Autism Program (Yale SANA Program)

Work in our lab is focused on early social and affective development of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disabilities. We aim to discover biomarkers of social and emotional vulnerabilities and novel treatment targets in infancy and early childhood. Our highly interdisciplinary and collaborative research relies on integration of cutting edge clinical behavioral, neurophysiological, and imaging data in service of improving the lives of children living with complex developmental disorders.
