Your philanthropy will support our cutting edge researchto evaluatespecific alterations in the microbiota, and the role of such alterations in the development and progression of autism.

Gut Microbiota PlaysImportant Role in Autism

It is known that gut microbiota contribute to the progression of  autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

The Human Microbiology Institute is dedicated to searching for novel human pathogens and determining their roles in ASD. Additionally we study their role in the cross-talk between the microbiome and the human host related to ASD pathogenesis. As such, your help will provide new opportunities for understanding the pathogenesis of ASD, and may contribute to the development of methods for the prevention and treatment of this disease.
