Largest-Ever Autism Research Network Takes Shape

Autism research efforts are getting a leg up with a new public-private partnership designed to make data on thousands with the developmental disability more available for study.
The National Institutes of Health said Monday that a new collaboration with Autism Speaks will create what’s believed to be the largest single source of research data on people with autism to date.
Under the partnership, scientists will be able to access information from the advocacy organization’s Autism Genetic Resource Exchange when they search the government’s National Database for Autism Research.
