Question 2: Short-term Objective A  

Fiscal Year: 2010

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding.2SA. Support at least four research projects to identify mechanisms of fever, metabolic and/or immune system interactions with the central nervous system that may influence ASD during prenatal-postnatal life by 2010. IACC Recommended Budget: $9,800,000 over 4 years. (Fever studies to be started by 2012.)
