The Charge Study: Childhood autism risks from genetics and the environment  

The common theme that connects all of the proposed experiments in the proposed Translational Autism Research Program (TARP) is that the identification of the biological and biochemical functions influencing gene expression in affected neural pathways is the key to developing effective therapeutic treatments for autism. Each of the five projects comprising this proposal, supported by three Cores, will provide answers to a domain-specific element of the ASDs. In aggregate, these projects will provide the links between the molecular, genetic, cognitive, and behavioral components of autism, and we anticipate that the relations among these areas will mature through the process of discovery.
