My name is Seth Bittker. Research shows that autism is usually fundamentally rooted in biochemistry. Therefore, therapeutics for autism should be focused on ameliorating the negative aspects of that biochemistry. So in my view autism biochemistry and relatedly therapeutics targeted to that biochemistry are the two areas of autism research which are likely to have the greatest impact on the lives of those with autism and their families.
Autism Research Connections is an interview series which focuses on research and researchers who are working in these promising areas to highlight their challenges, their thinking, and their successes. I hope you find the interviews as compelling as I do.
