Question 7: Objective O  

$605,338.00
Fiscal Year: 2010

New! Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount.7O. Create an information resource for ASD researchers (e.g., PhenX Project) to share information to facilitate data sharing and standardization of methods across projects by 2013. o This includes common protocols, instruments, designs, and other procedural documents and should include updates on new technology and links to information on how to acquire and utilize technology in development. o This can serve as a bidirectional information reference, with autism research driving the development of new resources and technologies, including new model systems, screening tools, and analytic techniques. IACC Recommended Budget: $2,000,000 over 2 years.

7.O. Funding: The recommended budget for this objective was met.

Progress: A small number of projects specific to this objective were funded. In addition, there are other projects that are responsive to the goals of this objective, but are coded elsewhere. For example, NDAR has developed a data dictionary that is now widely used across the research community to standardize data terminology so that data can be uniformly shared among researchers. Funding for this project is not reflected in the total for this objective because NDAR is coded elsewhere. NDAR also has a human subject common identifier that is now broadly used by the community.

Remaining Gaps, Needs and Opportunities: Funding is necessary to develop standardized methods and protocols. This is a long term project and will need to be approached carefully.
