Here at the Autism Research Centre, we are running several studies to further help us understand the genetics and epigenetics of autism and related traits. If you are interested in helping us with our research, please answer a few questions below, and you will be directed to the genetic study we think is most relevant for you.

If you have any questions about any of our studies please email us at [email protected]


Do you have a clinical diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition?

Do you have a mathematics degree or are you pursuing a mathematics degree?

Do you have a child, sibling or parent with a clinical diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition?

Do you have a mathematics degree or are you pursuing a mathematics degree?

Do you suspect that you have autism?

Genetics of Mathematical Ability and Autism Study

The aim of this study is to identify changes in the human DNA and how it is read, that contribute to autism and/or mathematical ability in order to understand the link between mathematical talent and autism.

Genetic Study of Autism Spectrum Conditions and Related Traits

This aim of this study is to understand whether individuals diagnosed with autism have specific variations in their genes that contribute to the condition and related behaviours.

Genetic Study of Autism Spectrum Conditions and Related Traits

This aim of this study is to understand whether individuals diagnosed with autism have specific variations in their genes that contribute to the condition and related behaviours. In order to understand the genetic causes of autism we must identify the differences between people with and without a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition.

We are sorry but at this time we are not able to include people who suspect they have autism but do not have a formal diagnosis into these research projects. If you are interested in helping us with other research projects you can sign up as a volunteer at www.autismresearchcentre.net.
