Maye's mentors include Alice Carter and Angela Stone-MacDonald, leaders in the development of inclusive early education training programs.

  • Rebecca Klar (Vanderbilt University) will investigate a possible drug target (the metabotropic glutamate receptor 7) for relieving the autism symptoms associated with Rett Syndrome. She will do so using a mouse model of Rett Syndrome an early but crucial step in determining promising new directions for medicine development. At Vanderbilt, Klar will work in the research group of Jeff Conn, who is advancing understanding of brain-circuit signaling in neurological disorders.

  • Sarah Slocum (University of Florida) will evaluate and compare two emergency interventions instructional fading and differential positive reinforcement for the safe and immediate suppression of dangerous escape behaviors in individuals with autism. Slocum's mentor, psychologist Timothy Vollmer, is a leading researcher in the area of applied behavior analysis with an emphasis in development disabilities and parenting.

    To engender a network of collaboration, the Weatherstone Fellowship program will include group interaction among fellows and opportunities to meet with the Weatherstone family and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The sixth annual luncheon will take place in the fall in New York City to hono
