A.J. Drexel Autism Institute receives $1.5 million from the Charles and Barbara Close Foundation
Date:3/20/2012

roughout the community, including underserved areas.
  • Adolescent and adult population outcomes: Providing a better understanding of how adolescents and young adults with autism can lead maximally independent and fulfilling lives.
  • Risk communication: Creating new ways to share information about autism that puts scientific accuracy at the forefront but respects community perspectives.

    The Institute builds on the faculty, resources and research already at Drexel in bringing a public health approach to autism science. Most notably, the School of Public Health is home to the Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI), directed by Newschaffer, which is one of only eleven NIH Autism Center of Excellence projects and the only one built on a public health science approach.

    "The emotional and economic costs of autism to our society are enormous," said Drexel president John A. Fry. "Drexel has a responsibility as a leading research university to tackle grave challenges like autism, and I am pleased that the Close Foundation sees the value in our efforts."

    Funds from the Close Foundation gift will support recruiting new faculty and development of Institute facilities, including dedicated clinical space, laboratory space, office space and public areas.
