Key ResultThis study shows that the number of autism research grants funded in the US from 1997 to 2006 significantly increased 15% per year. Although the majority of projects were concentrated in basic science (65%) compared to clinical (15%) and translational research (20%), there is a significant decrease in the proportion of basic research grants per year and a significant increase in the proportion of translational projects per year. The number of translational projects funded by the National…Expand
An Analysis of Canadian Institute for Health Research Funding for Research on Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Funding is clustered in a handful of provinces and institutions, favouring biomedical research and disfavouring behavioural interventions, adaptation, and institutional response, and preference for biomedical research may be due to the detriment of clinical research.
A Portfolio Analysis of Autism Research Funding in Australia, 2008-2017.
TLDR
Overall, Australian autism research funding during 2008-2017 followed a similar pattern to other countries, but shifted in the past 5 years, suggesting further progress is required to bring research funding into line with community priorities.
Autism Research: Where Does the Arab World Stand?
This review presents an examination of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research in the Arab world. A total of 142 publications were identified, spanning a period from 1992 to January 2014. The average
What should autism research focus upon? Community views and priorities from the United Kingdom
TLDR
There was a clear disparity between the United Kingdom’s pattern of funding for autism research and the priorities articulated by the majority of participants and there needs to be greater involvement of the autism community both in priority setting and in research more broadly.
Epidemiology of Autism Spectrum Disorders
In this chapter, we review existing prevalence estimates for autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) since 2000 and discuss methodological factors impacting the estimation of prevalence and the
Autism Research Funding Allocation: Can Economics Tell Us If We Have Got It Right?
TLDR
This work illustrates why economics cannot provide an objective, technical solution for identifying the “best” allocation of research resources and explains why economic analysis cannot provide a useful normative evaluation of ASD research.
Socioeconomic Status and the Increased Prevalence of Autism in California
TLDR
It is suggested that neighborhoods dynamically interact with the people living in them in different ways at different times to shape health outcomes to better understand the changing socioeconomic gradient of autism and the increase in prevalence.
Ethical Considerations in Conducting Research on Autism Spectrum Disorders in Low and Middle Income Countries
TLDR
It is argued that greater attention to ethical concerns will result in quality studies conducted in LMICs that are also of greatest relevance for families and children with ASD.
Focus on the Social Aspect of Autism
TLDR
The research of ASD, physician activities, policy making and raising the level of awareness must be coordinated, and special attention should be paid to the problem among adults with ASD.

Understanding autism: parents and pediatricians in historical perspective.
TLDR
The role of parents and advocates in autism research and treatment over the last 50 years is investigated and it is believed that this historical account will help pediatricians and researchers recognize that families can contribute to expert understanding of complex medical conditions such as autism.

TLDR
A generation ago, most children with autism did not receive a diagnosis until the school-age years, but nowadays it is much more usual for diagnoses to be made in the preschool period, although it tends to be later when there is not an associated intellectual disability.

Central challenges facing the national clinical research enterprise.
TLDR
The goal of this article is to articulate the 4 central challenges facing clinical research at present--public participation, information systems, workforce training, and funding; to make recommendations about how they might be addressed by particular stakeholders; and to invite a broader, participatory dialogue with a view to improving the overall performance of the US clinical research enterprise.
Autism Post-Mortem Neuroinformatic Resource: The Autism Tissue Program (ATP) Informatics Portal
TLDR
The Autism Tissue Program (ATP) was established to oversee and manage brain donations related to neurological research in autism, and the ATP Informatics Portal is an integrated data access system developed to provide access for researchers to information on this rare tissue resource.

TLDR
Findings in the limbic system, cerebellum, hippocampus, amygdala and entorhinal cortex have shown small cell size and increased cell packing density at all ages, suggesting a pattern consistent with development curtailment, raising the possibility that the neuropathology of autism may represent an on‐going process.
Interacting and paradoxical forces in neuroscience and society
TLDR
Drawing on examples of past challenges at the crossroads of neuroscience and society and on a case study of trends in one neurogenetic disease, autism, this work explores the dialectical forces interacting in scientific and public discourse.
