Jerusalem —- After conducting an in-depth study on its planned interdisciplinary autism center project for some time, Israel has finally announced that it will push through with what could be the first-ever interdisciplinary autism center in the entire Middle East.

The construction of the $75 million project will be a joint collaboration between the Hadassah Medical Center and the Hebrew University, in a unified effort to address the growing problems that autism spectrum disorder brings.

The state-of-the-art interdisciplinary autism center will serve as a research as well as a diagnosis and treatment center.

The decision by both the Hadassah Medical Center and the Hebrew University comes after studies have found that autism can be detected in young infants by testing their sense of smell.

David Lichtstein, Dean at the Hebrew University Medical School, said that he hopes that the Middle East’s first-ever interdisciplinary autism center, through its interdisciplinary approach, will be paving the way for breakthroughs in autism research.
