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.
Vikaas Sohal and John Rubenstein found that Pogz heterozygous mice exhibited reduced anxiety-related avoidance behavior and that this correlated with impaired communication between the ventral hippocampus and medial prefrontal cortex.
Vanessa Troiani and colleagues demonstrated a linear relationship between pupil dilation, reward/punishment sensitivity and individual ASD diagnostic status.
Robi Mitra and colleagues have developed a scalable CRISPR/Cas9 RNA sequencing assay in a human neuronal differentiation cell model, enabling high-throughput assessments of how repression of ASD risk genes affects transcription and neuronal differentiation.
