Objectiu de la convocatòria
Funding support interdisciplinary, synergistic research teamss across multiple laboratories to investigate sex differences in autism.
Característiques principals
SFARI Collaborations are a new funding mechanism that will provide substantive and stable funding support to multidisciplinary teams of investigators. A proposal must address how the impact of a given Collaboration will be greater than the sum of what would be possible through awards to individual laboratories.
Investigative groups within a Collaboration will focus on the same conceptually unified topic but will incorporate different scientific disciplines and multiple levels of analysis, and will include a robust data-sharing infrastructure.
We welcome proposals that will use an array of modern technologies to examine sex differences in brain function, within and across species, including humans, to identify key differences in gene, cell and circuit function that account for the observed differential sensitivities of the two sexes to ASD. A successful Collaboration must enhance our understanding of the biological bases for sex-specific differences in ASD and set the stage for development of novel interventions.
