Mayada Elsabbagh’s research focuses on understanding the root causes of autism and tracing its developmental pathways across the lifespan. Her work integrates innovative scientific research with the mission of accelerating the translation of discoveries into evidence-based and family-centered care in diverse world communities. Through a rich portfolio of community, national, and international activities and partnerships, our vision is to bridge what is currently a very wide gap between research advances and the pressing needs encountered by families and the systems supporting them.
