The Simons Foundation announced the establishment and funding of a new network of sites to collect brain tissue to advance autism research through brain donation at today’s International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR)
How can brain donation help research on Autism?
Experiments on human brain tissue are now the very best way forward in attempts to improve the quality of life of people who are on the Autism Spectrum.
The ATP, Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, the University of California MIND Institute, and the University of Texas at Southwestern Medical School will be the first four institutional partners of Autism BrainNet.
