Date:3/18/2014

NEW YORK, N.Y. (March 18, 2014) Autism Speaks, the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, today announced the sixth class of The Dennis Weatherstone Predoctoral Fellows funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Nine Fellows will be awarded more than $530,000 combined in research grants over the next two years. The fellowship program focuses on developing rising talent within the autism research community.

The Dennis Weatherstone Predoctoral Fellowship was established in 2008 in memory of Sir Dennis Weatherstone, the former Chairman and CEO of J.P. Morgan . The program honors his family's enduring commitment to the education of promising scientists beginning careers in autism research. Fellows will work directly with mentors who are leading investigators in the autism field.

"We thank the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Weatherstone family for this tremendous investment in the future of autism research," says Autism Speaks Chief Science Officer Rob Ring. "The Autism Speaks Weatherstone program builds careers as it supports research that advances our understanding, prevention and treatment of autism."

This years class of nine fellows was selected from a particularly diverse and strong field of candidates, adds Ed Clayton, Autism Speaks senior director for strategic funding and grants administration. This class also stands out in the impressive quality of its mentors, all of whom rank at the top of their field, Dr. Clayton says.

The 2014 Class of Weatherstone Predoctoral Fellows includes:

  • Aslihan Dincer (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) will examine histone methylation patterns in genetic material from postmortem brain tissue. This has the potential to significantly enhance our understanding of the role that this epigenetic control '/>"/>
