At the Academic Research Center for Autism, we focus on interprofessional research into the etiopathogenetic mechanisms of autism in domestic and foreign grant projects. Our interdisciplinary team is made up of experts from several fields, namely, neurology, psychology, molecular biology, genetics, nutrition and pharmacy.
The main mission of the Academic Research Center for Autism is to integrate research activities focused on autism, to introduce standard diagnostic procedures and therapeutic protocols according to evidence-based medicine in cooperation with parents of children with autism and relevant institutions in Slovakia. As part of our research projects, we have implemented standard diagnostic tools and protocols in Slovakia. By participating in our research, we offer free diagnostics to parents of children with a suspected autism spectrum disorder. Together we look for causes of this disorder and the possibilities of its therapeutic effect.
