Australian Autism Biobank

The Australian Autism Biobank is a long awaited resource that will aid in increasing our knowledge of the autism spectrum and co-occurring conditions.

We had more than 2,900 autistic and non-autistic children and adults participate, from across Australia. From our participants we collected 4,500 biological samples, as well as behavioural and questionnaire data. 

We would like to thank all our participants, who have contributed to positively transforming the lives of autistic people across the lifespan.
