Question 4: Short-term Objective B  

Fiscal Year: 2009

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding.4SB. Standardize and validate at least 20 model systems (e.g., cellular and/or animal) that replicate features of ASD and will allow identification of specific molecular targets or neural circuits amenable to existing or new interventions by 2012. IACC Recommended Budget: $75,000,000 over 5 years.
