Fam Baguio



Fam is the study coordinator for the study Promoting Perceptual Learning with Oxytocin in Autism. This study aims to determine the tolerability and therapeutic potential of oxytocin in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when paired with a computer game intervention called FaceStation, which is designed to enhance face perception skills. She is also a clinical research assistant working on the Biobehavioral Markers of Anxiety in Autism Spectrum Disorder study, which seeks to understand how children with ASD experience anxiety differently.

Fam graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2009, earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology with an emphasis in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a Senior Honors Thesis on the sociological impacts on women’s birthing choices with Lalia Kiburi, PhD. She then attended Drexel University College of Medicine where she pursued a Master of Science in Medical Science. During her undergraduate career, Fam worked as a research assistant and project coordinator for prospective studies in ASD with Sally Ozonoff, PhD and Sally Rogers, PhD at the UC Davis Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (M.I.N.D.) Institute.
