Autistic people urge scientists to work alongside them

An initiative to bring autistic people together with scientists to share ideas and influence the research agenda has culminated in an exhibition of thought-provoking portraits at Science Gallery London.  

Changing the Face of Autism Research Together is led by Dr Kinga Bercsenyi, Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow at the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology at King’s College London. Its aim is to establish a dialogue between the autistic community and researchers, so that future studies are influenced by the views, priorities and input of autistic people.
