Autism Speaks has launched a Request for Applications (RFA) to support a new program that will award pilot grants to innovative small businesses developing products for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). These grants will assist small businesses that are conducting innovative biomedical or behavioral research related to the development and commercialization of new products – including medicines, technologies or devices – that could improve the lives of individuals with ASD. Small businesses, organized for profit and located in any country, are eligible to submit applications for this opportunity. Successful applications will align clearly with the targeted priorities of Autism Speaks. Please see our Open Grants page for information on how to apply.
