Autism Speaks supports global biomedical research into the diagnosis, causes, prevention and
treatment of autism. Our mission is to improve the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum
disorders. In support of that mission we provide funding along the entire research continuum -- from discovery to development to dissemination -- for innovative projects that hold considerable promise for significantly improving the lives of persons with autism.
Autism Speaks invites applications from predoctoral students interested in pursuing careers in
autism research. The Dennis Weatherstone Fellows will work directly with mentors who are leading scientists in autism related research. This program supports the growth of a promising cadre of young scientists who will make autism research their chosen field. In order to cross-fertilize ideas and facilitate a network of collaboration, the Weatherstone program will include group interaction among the class of fellows and an annual meeting with the Weatherstone family and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. More information about the Weatherstone program is available on the Autism Speaks website.
