The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) is considering applications on a rolling basis for their Explorer Awards. They seek proposals for “high-risk/high-impact, exploratory experiments” relevant to autism. They are especially interested in the genetics of autism and thus “encourage applications that propose research to link genetic or other ASD risk factors to molecular, cellular, circuit or behavioral mechanisms of ASD.” The maximum budget is $80,000. More information is available on their website.
