Many opportunities are available for families to participate in autism research. You can join a clinical trial, enroll in a research study, contribute to our rich genetic database or participate online by adding your family information to a research database. Nearly 90 percent of children with cancer are enrolled in clinical trials--contrasted with only 5 percent of children with autism. Your participation can make a difference in the lives of all who struggle with autism.
Autism Speaks is pleased to announce that we have redesigned the way you can search for the scientific research grants we have funded!

We hope you find this to be an easy-to-use and valuable resource in sharing our science research investments with the autism community.
Autism Speaks supports global biomedical research into the diagnosis, causes, prevention, and treatment of autism or its disabling symptoms. Our mission is to improve the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In support of that mission we provide funding along the entire research continuum - from discovery to development to dissemination - for innovative projects that hold considerable promise for significantly improving the lives of those affected by autism.
