Description

Description

The purpose of the grant was to help the Digestive Function Laboratory (DFL) manage and extend its repository for tissues from children with and without autism. The award received from ARI should be used for: 1) buying capital equipment such as -80oC freezer; 2) buying Freezerworks software and Freezerworks Bar Code Accessories for the cryogenic-safe bar code labeling; and 3) salary for technician managing and entering data in the repository. The repository will facilitate studies of the microbiome in ASD children by collecting intestinal tissue, blood, urine, stool, and saliva.
