Dr. Broder-Fingert is a pediatrician, health services research, and implementation scientist working to develop and test novel interventions to ensure equity for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

She is Principal Investigator (PI) of multiple NIMH-funded R01-awards to study novel interventions to improve equity in early diagnosis and treatment of ASD. She serves as the implementation PI for a multi-site randomized controlled trial of a community-based intervention for ASD in which she is working to advance methodology for measuring and analyzing fidelity and adaptations to autism interventions in the “real world”. She is a fellow Implementation Research Institute (IRI), has over 50 publications in the field, and co-Direct the Innovation in Autism Disparities, Inclusion, Outreach, and Transition Services Lab at Boston University.
