Autism BrainNet announces the initiation of brain tissue distribution to investigators. Initially, distributed tissue will be restricted to donations previously collected by the ATP. In order to apply for tissue, investigators should submit a short research abstract and fill out the form located here (https://abn.sfari.org/researchers/register/) and upload the required documentation. Complete applications will be reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee (https://autismbrainnet.org/about-us/committees/). Authorized investigators will be contacted by a representative of Autism BrainNet to discuss specific tissue needs and plan for tissue shipment. For additional inquiries please email requests@AutismBrainNet.org.
We anticipate that distribution of the newly acquired tissue collected under the auspices of Autism BrainNet will begin in the fall of 2016.
