Who we are
The Irish Centre for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Research (ICAN) is made up of researchers who are dedicated through rigorous scientific and interdisciplinary research to the advancement of knowledge in relation to autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
The GEMMA Project has just launched.
NUI Galway are partners in an EU consortium of researchers who have been awarded €14.2M funding by the European Commission as part of Horizon 2020 programme. The project GEMMA (Genome, Environment, Microbiome and Metabolome in Autism) is a ground-breaking autism research project which will for the first time follow children who are at risk of developing autism from 6 months of age.
