Our Research Community
Research lies in being able accept the unknown of it all. Relinquishing control to the cells and the science is really hard, but really exciting. Accepting that I might fail has been the hardest thing I’ll ever do, but it’s also where I’ve made the most progress.”
My students are so open to the research experience and going beyond their struggle to connect with students in the school-to-prison pipeline. The fact that they continue to integrate the knowledge generated from their research into their teaching is very inspiring to me."
As a field, we need to continue to do a better job involving autistic individuals in research.The answers and solutions we obtain from this study will be way more meaningful and helpful for the autism community.”
