Your generosity supports critical research on the newly discovered link between autism and the gut microbiome.

There is increasing evidence suggesting a link between autism and the gastrointestinal microbiome. Supporting research involves microbial community characterization of beneficial bacterial samples from participants with autism spectrum disorder, as well as isolation and purification of genetic material, sequencing and bioinformatics analysis before and after treatment with beneficial microbes from people without autism spectrum disorder. It also involves the preservation of samples and possible enrichment of community members that provide beneficial functions.

 

Autism research involves microbial community characterization of beneficial bacterial samples from participants with autism spectrum disorder studies as well as isolation and purification of genetic material, sequencing and bioinformatic analysis before and after treatment with beneficial microbes from people without autism spectrum disorder. It also involves the preservation of samples and possible enrichment of community members that provide beneficial functions. Funds will support the purchase of research supplies, instruments, and services to conduct laboratory and clinical experiments to accomplish these goals. Funds may also pay for research professionals who will conduct and disseminate the research through publications, meetings, and outreach.
