Welcome to the website of Leuven Autism Research (LAuRes). This research consortium unites a diverse set of research groups from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven).

The main goal of LAuRes is to promote and engage in contemporary research on the fundamental and clinical underpinnings of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It thereby incorporates research with topics related to the behavioural phenotype, cognition, brain imaging, molecular and cellular biology, genetics and environment.
