Research Focus:

Dr. Anagnostou’s research focuses on improving outcomes and quality of life for children with autism spectrum disorders and their families. She is the co-lead of the Autism Research Centre at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital with Dr. Jessica Brian.

Research Focus (Academic Version)

Dr. Anagnostou studies how genes affect brain structure/function, behaviour, cognition and health in children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders.  Then she works to translate this information to new intervention.
