If we are to understand autism and eventually have effective treatments, preventions and cures, scientists must discover the genes involved. In a remarkable six-month period, we have seen the publication of two NAAR-funded studies that have identified "candidate" genes for autism.

NAAR is delighted to report on these important research findings by 1999 NAAR Awardees, Drs. Flavio Keller and Christopher Stodgell and their respective colleagues.
NAAR has planned a Tri-State Autism Lecture series that includes five research-based seminars designed for parents, therapists, researchers, physicians and service providers interested in learning the latest in autism research.
