As immediate past co-chair of the Autism Care network/ Autism Treatment Network, a North American collaborative of academic autism center, investigating co-occuring conditions in autism she collaborates on a variety of autism related clinical research projects. 

Along with her colleagues from MGH endocrinology she has published the first studies showing  that bone is not properly developed or mineralized in boys with autism and that this may be due to less exercise as well as nutritional and other factors, that the bones don't catch up to their peers when followed over time, and that there is an increased risk of fractures in women with ASD when an emergency room database was studied.
