Jeremy Veenstra-VanderWeele
Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Pediatrics, and Pharmacology, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

Jeremy Veenstra-VanderWeele uses molecular and translational neuroscience research tools in the pursuit of new treatments for autism.

On 25 June, Jeremy Veenstra-VanderWeele laid out two conceptual paths forward for developing effective autism drugs — one that focuses on the total group of people affected by autism but that might only provide modest relief, and another that could be transformative but focuses on a subset of individuals with the disorder.

Veenstra-VanderWeele is medical director of the Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
