Autism BrainNet and NIH

Autism BrainNet and NIH NeuroBioBank Partner to Advance Autism Research

Simons Foundation and Autism Speaks have entered into an agreement with the National Institutes of Health to align two of the world’s largest repositories of donated postmortem brain tissue for medical research: Autism BrainNet and the NIH NeuroBioBank. The partnership will establish a collaborative, nationwide effort for the collection, storage, and distribution of human brain tissue for autism research.
Funding Opportunities
SFARI Explorer Awards RFA

SFARI Explorer Awards RFA

Explorer Awards are intended to support exploratory experiments that will strengthen hypotheses and lead to the formulation of competitive applications for subsequent larger-scale funding by SFARI or other organizations. Innovative, high-risk/high-impact proposals are encouraged. We especially encourage applications from investigators who are new to the field of autism, but who have expertise that could be brought to bear on this complex disorder.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
