Autism Speaks awards 21 new research grants funding
Date:12/16/2010

New York, N.Y. (December 16, 2010) Autism Speaks, the world's largest autism science and advocacy organization, today announced the awarding of 21 new research grants totaling $2,309,233 in funding over the next three years. In this round of grants, Autism Speaks inaugurates its Bob and Suzanne Wright Trailblazer Awards which support highly novel "out of the box" autism-relevant research. The three Trailblazer Awards this year fund small investigator-initiated projects that are potentially transformative, paradigm shifting, and have the potential to overcome significant roadblocks in autism research within a 12-month period. The majority of the grants funded this year pilot research projects focused on innovation, research strategy, and Autism Speaks' research priority areas. Funding is also allocated to four special research projects.

"Suzanne and I are proud this year to launch the Trailblazer Awards, made possible by the generosity of a core group of donors and supporters who believe that measured risks in autism research, like measured risks in the world of business, can yield significant, high impact results," said Autism Speaks Co-founder Bob Wright. "These novel research projects have tremendous potential to open new avenues to understanding autism spectrum disorder (ASD)."

"The Autism Speaks research portfolio is the core of our support for individuals impacted with ASD and their families," added Autism Speaks President Mark Roithmayr. "We know that as families seek the best possible diagnosis, treatments and therapies for their loved ones, validated research is critical in giving families confidence and hope for improving the lives of individuals with ASD," he continued. "Without the incredible generosity of our community and corporate partners, and the funds raised at hundreds of Walk Now for Autism Speaks events throughout the year, this research would not be possible."
