Definition One of our goals at Autism Speaks is to id One of our goals at Autism Speaks is to identify and support promising research with the hope that results from these efforts will produce significant findings that will be reported in peer-reviewed journals. We also hope that grants we fund will lead to additional research support from government or other funding agencies. Since 1997, the organizations combined have committed more than $89 million to fund more than 737 research projects and fellowships. The investment in these research grants alone has been leveraged into nearly $153 million in NIH and other funding for the continuation of these scientific studies. Grants: Each year Autism Speaks holds a variety of investigator-initiated grant calls. We are pleased to be able to support many different types of projects, each critical for advancing all phases of autism research, from basic to clinical to treatment. These grants are crucial for allowing investigators to gain enough data to be able to attract even larger, multi-year commitments from the NIH and other traditional medical research funding organizations. Our grants include pilot grants, basic and clinical grants, augmentation and bridge grants, treatment and technology grants. Fellowships: Fellowships provide the necessary resources to support and encourage the development of young scientists who benefit from the mentorship of prominent researchers. We believe the investment in autism research training will grow exponentially as many of our fellows later assume teaching roles and join departments around the country and the world, many of which currently have no representation in autism research. Please note that in addition to our investigator-initiated grants and fellowships, we also support research through funding of proactive initiatives, including collaborative projects, resources and meetings. borative projects, resources and meetings.
