In one such study, Constantinos Sioutas, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, will chart exposure to air pollution in more than 600 California children with autism.

Part of this study is aimed at determining whether chemical species in airborne ultrafine particles are associated with the incidence of autism in children, Sioutas said.

Lajonchere credited Steven Moldin, executive director of USCs Washington, D.C. Office of Research Advancement and co-director of the new center, for helping to create a presence for autism and autism research at USC.

Earlier this year, Moldin organized a three-day meeting at USC of the countrys leading autism researchers to discuss the shared neurobiological roots of autism and other developmental disorders.
