In a remarkable six-month period, we have seen the publication of two NAAR-funded studies that have identified "candidate" genes for autism.
April 23, 2007

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. Significantly, both of these genes appear to have functions that fit into the known neurobiology of 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.
