ASF Supported Findings

Funding autism research is at the core of our mission. This year, we increased our funding for pre- and post-doctoral fellowships by over 20%. Our focus is on clever young investigators with cutting-edge ideas who need seed money to get their research off the ground. We pair these researchers with established scientists who provide mentorship and training. The government and other funders have decreased funding for training grants, but we are committed to helping the best and brightest young scientists gather the initial data they need to attract major funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and encouraging these young scientists to dedicate their careers to autism research.

We are proud to share the research that has resulted from our funding.
