Marcus Autism Center chosen again as Autism Center of Excellence

The funding will support large-scale studies on autism, with the goal of identifying causes and best-practice treatments. Learn more about this exciting designation for our center.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded nine research grants totaling nearly $100 million over the next five years for the Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE), a program that supports large research projects aimed at understanding and developing interventions for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The ACE program was created in 2007 from the consolidation of previous programs. Grants have been awarded every five years, and 2017 marks the third cycle of ACE grants.
