About Me

In the News

In 2010, Dr. Buxbaum co-founded the Autism Sequencing Consortium (ASC), an international group of scientists who share autism samples and data. Today, he co-leads the ASC, which recently published a paper in Cell that identified 102 genes associated with risk for autism.

The largest autism sequencing study to date was highlighted in the NIH Director's blog and featured in TIME, USA Today, and many more outlets.
