These studies search for combinations of environmental risk factors and genetic susceptibility that increase the risk for ASD. (Note: While epigenetic studies often fit this definition, they are tracked separately for strategic planning purposes.)
Graph: Genetic risk factors accounted for a majority of research funding in Question 3 in 2010 (63%). Gene-Environment studies received 25% of funding, Epigenetic studies 7%, and Environment studies 5%.
