SFARI is working to advance autism science by providing a number of key resources to researchers.
We solicit applications for SFARI Awards from individuals who will conduct bold, imaginative, rigorous and relevant research in four main research areas: gene discovery, molecular mechanisms, circuits, cognition and behavior, and clinical.
Christopher Gregg and colleagues demonstrate that diverse epigenetic mechanisms affect allele-specific gene expression in the mammalian brain.
Kevin Bender and Stephan Sanders show that ASD-associated SCN2A variants lead to impaired NaV1.2 channel activity and reduced neuronal excitability.
Amiel Rosenkranz and colleagues have identified a specific intra-amygdala circuit, from the lateral nucleus to the medial nucleus, which is critical for social learning.
