Dr. Erickson specializes in research and clinical treatment involving persons with developmental disorders. His primary research focus is on new treatment development for Fragile X Syndrome (FXS), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and other related disorders. He is the director of the Fragile X Research and Treatment Center and also serves as the director of research at the Kelly O'Leary Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Dr. Pedapati has a strong interest in neuroplasticity and human electrophysiology. He primarily works using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in different patient populations including neuropsychiatric and developmental disorders.
I am a clinical psychologist and assistant professor of pediatrics in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology.
I specialize in assessment and diagnosis of individuals with a variety of developmental disability diagnoses, including autism spectrum disorder and fragile X syndrome. My work in the lab includes research assessment, trainee supervision, and collaboration with other lab team members in writing scholarly articles.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and assistant professor of pediatrics with extensive training in neurodevelopmental disorders. Since joining the team over 4 years ago, I have been a primary investigator or co-investigator on several projects.
Broadly, my work focuses on identifying clinical correlates of neurophysiological and molecular biomarkers as well as characterizing potential subgroups of drug responders in fragile X syndrome and autism spectrum disorder. I am also particularly interested in measuring and treating cognitive flexibility in neurodevelopmental disorders.
I have been in the social work field since 2009, after receiving my bachelor’s and master’s from The Ohio State University. I am independently licensed with supervisory status in the state of Ohio and have served as a clinical and research social worker at Cincinnati Children's for the past eight years.
I specialize in patients with co-occurring mental health and developmental diagnoses and have been involved with the Regulating Together program since its inception as an assessor and group facilitator. I am most energized by family components of research, and research that directly provides education and skills to patients and families for improving everyday life.
I graduated from West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Science in child development and a minor in communications.
In my role as a clinical research coordinator, I am the lead coordinator for a study focused on identifying mRNA biomarkers of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) through saliva collection. My primary research interest involves children with developmental disabilities, particularly in the area of ASD.
I graduated with a BS in psychology and a minor in communication, and a certificate in deaf studies from the University of Cincinnati. While in school, I was a student in the Shaffer Lab and since then, have become a clinical research coordinator. In this role, I am the lead coordinator on an early intervention study, partnering with Florida State University, and the senior coordinator on the Regulating Together study.
I also assist with several other studies including Quadrant and SPARK. My primary research interests revolved around autism spectrum disorder (ASD), emotion regulation, interpersonal communication patters, and interpersonal relationships in the ASD community.
