A lost generation? The impact of the COVID‐19 pandemic on early career ASD researchers

March 26, 2021

The COVID‐19 pandemic has had negative impacts on research and has impeded autism research discoveries. However, researchers in the earliest phases of their career, specifically postdoctoral fellows through individuals in assistant professor (or equivalent) positions, are particularly vulnerable to long‐lasting effects of pandemic‐related disruptions which may limit their ability to continue as autism researchers. In a March 24 issue of Autism Research, Duke Center for Autism investigator Dr. Kim Carpenter and other researchers discuss this impact.
