Paul Law is the Director of IAN. In 1997, in conjunction with the Cure Autism Now Foundation, Paul developed the Internet System for Assessing Autistic Children (ISAAC). This web-based system enables research projects to manage clinical data. Currently ISAAC is used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and academic institutions throughout the world.
Dr. Law is excited about the potential for the IAN Project. "Because the Internet is so widely used, IAN will allow researchers and families to form an unprecedented partnership that will allow for a dramatic acceleration in our understanding of autism and how to treat it."
Dr. Law earned his MD from Johns Hopkins University in 1997 and received a MPH degree from the JHU School of Public Health in the year prior. He completed his pediatric residency in 2000 and a health informatics fellowship in 2005 - both at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Law is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Informatics Association, and Delta Omega, the Honorary Society in Public Health.
