The Crehan Lab primarily focuses on studying social cognition and autism, with studies focusing on sexuality and sexual education as well as theory of mind and perceptual processes. Members of the community advisory board serve as representatives of their communities to inform our research process and priorities.
Participants in the Community Advisory Board review research summaries and attend annual meetings to share their input on current proposed studies and ideas for future studies. We believe it is important to have a diverse group of individuals with knowledge of or experience with autism spectrum disorders as well as health, development, and sexuality. No prior experience with research is required to participate in advisory board meetings.
If you are interested in being involved with our Community Advisory Board, please email CrehanLab@tufts.edu or call Dr. Crehan at (617) 627-3393. Be sure to leave your name and contact information (either email or phone number).
