NAAR and NAAR-Funded Researchers Featured in Wall Street Journal & New York Times
April 23, 2007

Last month, NAAR and several NAAR-funded researchers were recognized in two national newspapers, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

NAAR was recognized in a February 9 editorial in the Journal, titled, “Autism and Vaccines,” which appeared in the Review and Outlook section. The Journal commended NAAR for its dedication to research, including studies it has funded that focus on the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine and autism.

“This widely respected outfit was founded by parents of autistic children, and its staff and volunteers have raised millions for research,” the Journal wrote.

In addition, several NAAR-funded researchers were featured in the story, “Lifting the Veils of Autism, One by One,” published in the New York Times on February 24. The reporter, Erica Goode, interviewed Andy Shih, Ph.D., NAAR's director of Research & Programs, for the story but his comments were not used.

The story did feature many NAAR-funded researchers, such as Simon Baron-Cohen, Ph.D. and Anthony Bailey, Ph.D., of Cambridge University; Fred Volkmar, M.D., Ami Klin, Ph.D. and Robert Schultz, Ph.D., of the Yale Child Study Center; Martha Herbert, M.D., Ph.D., of Harvard University, Manual Casanova, M.D., of the University of Louisville, and David Amaral, Ph.D, of the University of California , Davis.
