Description

Description

Autism spectrum disorder is a common and profoundly debilitating psychological disorder. While recent evidence has implied a genetic basis for this disease, very little is known about how to connect genes to function to [eventually] treatment. This study proposes a series of experiments to develop a deeper understanding of how one model of autism spectrum disorder might function at multiple levels from genes to molecules to neural circuits as they function in the brain.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 4.5 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.
