Trends in US Autism Research Funding.

 

Singh J, Illes J, Lazzeroni L, Hallmayer J. Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics, Center for Integration of Research on Genetics and Ethics, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, USA.

 

 

This study shows that the number of autism research grants funded in the US from 1997 to 2006 significantly increased 15% per year. Although the majority of projects were concentrated in basic science (65%) compared to clinical (15%) and translational research (20%), there is a significant decrease in the proportion of basic research grants per year and a significant increase in the proportion of translational projects per year. The number of translational projects funded by the National Alliance for Autism Research and Cure Autism Now increased significantly, whereas the number of clinical projects significantly increased for the National Institutes of Health. In conclusion, this study demonstrates the shifting landscape of autism research from basic science to clinical and translational research.
