Dr. Viviana Trezza at Roma Tre University (Rome, Italy) has developed a rat model that allows the evaluation of the relationship between altered brain function in ASD and behavior. This model can test new pharmacological drug treatment options and their side effects. Samples from this model will undergo molecular analysis and will aid in development of the “ASD Correlate” – a proprietary diagnostic paradigm to capture molecular, cellular, and behavioral features of ASD with an aim to personalize individual therapy.
