Stelios Georgiades
Associate Professor, Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences

Dr. Stelios Georgiades is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences, Director of the Offord Centre for Child Studies at McMaster University, and the inaugural holder of the McMaster Children’s Hospital Chair in Autism and Neurodevelopment. His program of research investigates the factors influencing developmental trajectories of children and youth with autism and neurodevelopmental conditions. The overarching objective of this research is to generate new knowledge that will lead to more precise, equitable and personalized evidence-based interventions and service systems for children and their families. For more than a decade he has been working closely with provincial and federal stakeholders to advance science, improve care, and shape autism-related programs and policies for autistic children, youth and their families across Canada.

Dr. Georgiades is the Founder and Co-Director of the McMaster Autism Research Team (MacART), an interdisciplinary collaborative aiming to advance autism care through meaningful research. This includes the Pediatric Autism Research Cohort (PARC) Project, which is bridging the research-to-practice gap by embedding a research protocol within the Autism clinic at McMaster Children’s Hospital. Dr. Georgiades is Co-lead for the McMaster site for the Pathways in ASD study, a Canada-wide longitudinal study of children and youth with ASD – the largest of its kind, and the largest longitudinal ASD study to date. He is also the McMaster site lead for the Province of Ontario Neurodevelopmental (POND) Network, a provincial research program working on improving outcomes for children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Dr. Georgiades is a Co-PI on a new national study, “Examination of the Impacts of COVID-19 Pandemic Response on Health and Functioning of Canadian Children and Youth” (in partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada and Statistics Canada).
