Vanderbilt Autism Research Registry

Principal Investigator: Jeffrey L. Neul, M.D., Ph.D.


Children and adults who have a diagnosis of autism.

How Does it Work?

The Vanderbilt Autism Research Registry aids Vanderbilt Kennedy Center researchers in connecting with individuals with autism and families who are willing to participate in research.

Registry members will decide how they want to be contacted (phone or email) when they are eligible for a new study. Members are not obligated to participate in studies and will specify the number of study referrals they wish to receive per year. Members can update this number at any time and will not be contacted for more than this number of study opportunities.

What Kind of Research is Conducted at the VKC?

The VKC promotes an interdisciplinary approach to research. Scientists and practitioners in behavior, education, genetics, and neuroscience work together in unique ways to solve the mysteries of development and learning. They use a broad range of methodologies and measures to conduct treatment and intervention studies. Many study typical and atypical processes. All studies are reviewed and approved by the Vanderbilt University Institutional Review Board.
