Autism ScienceServ

This ScienceServ explores the connections between autism and the environment. We do this by distributing influential research articles sharing new research, treatments, and prevention strategies. We work to create collaborative opportunities among researchers, advocates, public health professionals, patients, and healthcare providers to reduce the burden of autism in the community. CHE Partnership calls feature new research about environmental contributors to autism and innovative efforts to apply the science towards autism reduction and prevention.

This ScienceServ is co-coordinated by Martha Herbert, MD, PhD, pediatric neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital; and Michael Lerner, PhD, Commonweal’s president.

CHE does not take a stance on specific legislation nor sign petitions and the like. Rather, we investigate and discuss the scientific foundation for more health-protective policies in a civil tone. For posting guidelines and etiquette, please see our CHEtiquette.
