Meet CAR Researchers
In this edition of Autism Dispatch, we continue our series of interviews with the families, researchers and clinicians who make up the CAR community. We asked two post-doctoral fellows and two research assistants about why they chose to study autism, what is most exciting about their work, and what is the most important lesson they have learned in their career thus far.
Dr. Guthrie is a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Autism Research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who focuses on early identification of autism and developmental trajectories for children with autism.
Dr. Sariyanidi is a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Autism Research who specializes in computer vision engineering to digitize facial and body movements to enhance our understanding and detection of autism.
Thank you to all the riders, runners, virtual participants and supporters who didn't let a little (well, a lot) of rain dampen the spirit of the inaugural Eagles Autism Challenge. We ran, biked, celebrated and danced to the music, and we had an amazing time with all of you!
Advances in understanding autism and related disorders are only possible as a direct result of the participation of individuals and families. We have opportunities for all ages, and you do not need an autism diagnosis to participate.
