Michigan State Receives NIH Award for Autism Research

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Fri, Aug 03, 2018

Research into how young children with autism integrate auditory and visual information to learn the meaning of words started this summer at Michigan State University (MSU). The three-year project is funded through a $300,000 Early Career Research Award from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), a branch of the National Institute of Health (NIH).

UC Davis Medical Center Awarded $12M Autism Centers of Excellence Grant

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Sep 25, 2017

UC Davis Medical Center’s Mind Institute was one of five institutes in the nation to win the NIH’s Autism Centers of Excellence Award (ACE). The $12 million, five year grant, will be used for the creation of the “Center for the Development of Phenotype-based Treatments of Autism Spectrum Disorder.” This new center will take a personalize approach to addressing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) treatment based on a child’s behavioral and biological characteristics. The goal will be to identify and tailor treatments that improve the quality of life for those with ASD.

UCLA: One Step Closer to the Cause of Autism

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Sep 19, 2016

Over the last 40 years incidence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have increased tenfold. Until recently, the cause of autism was a complete mystery. Now a major discovery at UCLA has just brought researchers one step closer to unlocking the mystery of ASD.

The UCLA study found distinctive changes in the levels of tiny regulator molecules known as microRNAs in the brains of people with ASD. These microRNAs control the activities of large gene networks. This finding helps explain why so many genes are abnormal in autism disorders. It could also lead to targeted treatments or preventative measures someday.
