The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has seen dramatic growth in our research programs in recent years, both in funding and in impact. Our research benefits many people within our community, in particular those who are economically or educationally disadvantaged.
One example is a research program in the Ohio State University Primary Care Research Institute (PCRI) which fosters, facilitates and reports interdisciplinary research to optimize health, inform public policy and improve health outcomes for the local community.
At the Nisonger Center, Luc Lecavalier, PhD, directs a program that serves children with disabilities and their families by developing, implementing and monitoring behavior support plans for challenging behaviors. His research focuses on diagnosis of behavior and psychiatric problems in individuals with intellectual disability including autism spectrum disorders. Dr. Lecavalier was recently honored for his contribution to research in intellectual development.
