About Us

The UCSF Autism and Neurodevelopment Program is a multidisciplinary team of neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, geneticists, pediatricians, neuroscientists, research coordinators, technologists and administrators located on the Parnassus campus of the University of California, San Francisco. We strive to find the causes of autism – and the most effective treatments.

The mission of the UCSF Autism and Neurodevelopment Program is to integrate personalized care with innovative research and education.

The UCSF Autism and Neurodevelopment Program was established in 2009 to bring together the vibrant UCSF clinical and research community.

Collaborations allow us to accomplish more research with fewer resources. Some of our collaborations have broad goals to understand autism and neurodevelopment over time, while others may have much more specific goals.

Our fees cover only a fraction of the cost of our clinical and research endeavors. Your contribution enables us to pursue autism research and treatment, so we can offer the highest quality of clinical care for patients and their families. We need your support.

The UCSF Autism and Neurodevelopment Program produces a regular newsletter and has been written about by the media.
