|IACC Strategic Plan Objective||2008||2009||2010||2011||2012||Total|
|Support five studies that associate specific genotypes with functional or structural phenotypes, including behavioral and medical phenotypes (e.g., nonverbal individuals with ASD and those with cognitive impairments) by 2015.
IACC Recommended Budget: $22,600,000 over 5 years
|2.S.G. Funding: The recommended budget was met. Significantly more than the recommended minimum budget was allocated to projects specific to this objective.
Progress: Over 40 projects have been funded in this area, and the projects cover the areas described, so the objective appears to be on track.
Remaining Gaps, Needs and Opportunities: With so many studies initiated, the next step is to encourage multi-site collaboration in order to achieve the large number of subjects required for meaningful data interpretation.
