Autism Research Coalition

JAMA. 2005;293(8):921. doi:10.1001/jama.293.8.921-d

An international partnership of organizations has formed to fund research aimed at identifying the genes associated with autism spectrum disorders, a range of conditions that impair thinking, feeling, language, and the ability to relate to others. The National Institutes of Health is heading up the coalition, which includes the Canadian and Irish governments and 3 private autism foundations. The group will provide more than $21 million for autism studies over 5 years, and it is requesting applications that will undergo peer review this summer (http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-MH-05-007.html). Funding will be awarded in the fall.
