Program Description

The purpose of this FOA is to stimulate and foster research to (1) identify environmental contributors to risk and expression of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and (2) understand how environmental factors impact the underlying biologic processes implicated in ASD. A range of approaches are being encouraged by this FOA, from basic mechanistic studies using in vitro and in vivo model systems to studies that add new data collection activities and/or make use of extant data or biospecimens in existing human studies. Studies that address hypotheses related to the joint contribution of genes and environment are of particular interest. It is anticipated that knowledge gained from the research supported by this FOA will be used to inform public health prevention and intervention strategies
