About us

The Autism Research Trust raises funds to predominantly support research conducted at the Autism Research Centre (ARC) at Cambridge University.

The ARC is at the cutting edge of autism research. Under the leadership of Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, the ARC aims to develop our understanding of the causes of autism and to evaluate interventions to ensure that people affected by autism receive the best possible support.

With your help we aim to fund cutting edge research that will influence understanding and services worldwide. The Autism Research Trust strongly believes that by investing in high quality research we can make a difference to the lives of those affected by autism, both now and into future generations.
