Dr. Laura Carpenter Presents on SPARK for Autism

MUSC’s very own Dr. Laura Carpenter recently presented on the SPARK Autism Research Study at the statewide SC Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disability (SCAND) conference! Dr. Carpenter is the Principal Investigator for the MUSC site of the SPARK study.

What is SPARK?

SPARK is a landmark national autism research project designed to facilitate research that accelerates our understanding of the causes of autism and how autism impacts all of those affected.

SPARK stands for “Simons Foundation Powering Autism Research for Knowledge,” and its mission is to speed up research and advance our understanding of autism to help improve lives.
