Naomi Peleg, M.Sc.

Naomi is a Clinical Research Coordinator with the Autism Research Centre at Holland Bloorview, working with Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou. Naomi currently coordinates clinical trial studies that investigate the use of a drug called tideglusib in improving social engagement, social functioning, and repetitive behaviours.

Prior to her role as a Research Coordinator, Naomi worked for over 2 years as a Research Assistant with the POND (Province of Ontario Neurodevelopmental Disorders Network) study led by Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou in the Autism Research Centre. This ongoing study investigates the neurobiology of Autism and associated neurodevelopmental disorders (such as ADHD, OCD, and intellectual disability) and aims to translate these findings into better targeted treatments.

Before joining the Autism Research Centre, Naomi obtained her Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology from the University of Victoria, where she specialized in lifespan development. Naomi is thrilled to be part of such an amazing team at the ARC and aims to be continually involved in research targeted at improving the lives of children and their families.
