Improving Autism Screening with Brain-Related miRNA

The central aim of this project is to characterize the expression of exosomal microRNA (miRNA) and nucleic acids in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We propose to measure the expression of extracellular miRNA and nucleic acids in children with ASD. Expression levels of miRNA and nucleic acids from blood and saliva will be compared between children with autism and normally developing controls. The goal of this study will be to identify genetic regulatory mechanisms involved in ASD and provide potential biomarkers for diagnostic screening.
