Each night in April, UCI’s Student Center, on the corner of West Peltason and Pereira drives, and Santa Ana’s Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders will glow blue to raise awareness of autism spectrum disorders. Additionally, UCI’s Center for Autism Research & Translation and the Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders will host a 5K run/walk to support autism research on Saturday, April 25, at the campus’s Anteater Recreation Center.
