SFARI is pleased to announce the 2017 SPARK Clinical Site Network request for applications (RFA). Grants awarded through this request are intended to support a network of US-based clinical sites to recruit individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorders (ASD) to participate in SPARK. The overall goals of SPARK are to recruit, engage and retain a community of 50,000 individuals with ASD, along with their family members in the United States. This research cohort will include children and adults with ASD, who span the full spectrum of autism and include individuals of all socio-demographic backgrounds.
Applications are due by January 13 2017. Selected clinical sites will receive funding of up to $150,000/year for a maximum of three years.
