Pioneering autism researcher, Matthew State, MD, PhD, discusses the profound scientific opportunities that are rapidly accelerating progress in autism research.

The advent of genome sequencing has allowed researchers to make significant progress in identifying genetic risk factors for autism. Dr. State has led this effort and just recently published research that found distinct sets of genetic defects that could lead to autism.

Dr. State discusses his research and the potential for better and earlier detection methods, as well as the possibility for potential treatments.

The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus (CBRC) was established in 1989 to broaden the support and knowledge of basic and clinical biomedical research issues throughout the Congress in a bipartisan manner. The CBRC is a bipartisan, bicameral Caucus and takes no dues from its members.
