AIR-P Presents: Environmental Health and Gene-Environment in Relation to Autism

This presentation will review literature on environmental factors, and gene-environment interactions, for autism and related traits and discuss gaps and needs for future research studies.

Topics will include:

  • How do environmental factors contribute to Autism?
  • Autism comes from both genetic and environmental factors, though few studies have examined them jointly.
  • Future research needs to more frequently examine modifiable exposures and impacts on traits and disabilities associated with autism.
