David S. Mandell

David S. Mandell, Sc.D., is professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, where he directs the Center for Mental Health Policy and Services Research. He also is associate director of the Center for Autism Research at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The goal of his research is to improve the quality of care that individuals with psychiatric and developmental disabilities receive in their communities. This research is of two types. The first examines the effects of different state and federal strategies to organize, finance, and deliver services on service use patterns and outcomes. The second consists of experimental studies to determine the best ways to successfully implement evidence-based practices in community settings. Dr. Mandell is the author of more than 150 peer-reviewed scientific publications. He co-chaired the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Autism Task Force from 2003 to 2006 and consults with Philadelphia agencies to help them develop appropriate policies to meet the needs of people with autism. He currently serves as a member of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Interagency Autism Coordinating Council. Dr. Mandell holds a bachelor of arts in psychology from Columbia University and a doctorate of science from the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.
