Bradley Campus Research Unit
The Bradley Campus Research Unit, under the direction of Larry Brow, MD, is part of the Bradley Hasbro Children's Research Center (BHCRC). Its offices are located in the east wing of the Laufer building on the Bradley Hospital campus in East Providence, RI.
The unit is home to the Developmental Disorders Genetics Research Program, Neuroplasticity and Autism Disorder Program and the Health Services Research Program.
Developmental Disorders Genetics Research Program
The Developmental Disorders Genetics Research Program seeks to identify genes associated with autism and intellectual disability so that it can be detected and diagnosed earlier and more accurately and treated more effectively. Eric Morrow, MD, PhD, sees patients on the Bradley campus. His genetics and neuroscience research lab is located at Brown University.

Neuroplasticity and Autism Disorder Program
The Neuroplasticity and Autism Disorder Program uses electrophysiological techniques to investigate contributors to autism spectrum disorders with the long-term goal of developing novel therapeutic interventions.
Health Services Research Program
The Health Services Research Program focuses on identifying and remediating gaps in the care of young people struggling with mental health and substance use disorders.
