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.
Lauren Weiss and Erik Ullian report on two studies using carrier-derived iPSC neurons to elucidate cellular phenotypes associated with 16p11.2 CNVs and a BRAF RASopathy mutation.
By assessing the 16p11.2 deletion autism mouse model, Ted Abel and colleagues uncover male-specific vulnerabilities in striatal signaling and reward function.
Evan Eichler and Robert Darnell provide deep whole genome sequencing of 516 families with idiopathic autism, providing insights into the complex etiology of simplex autism.
