Relaunch of SFARI.org
The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) today announces the launch of its newly redesigned website, SFARI.org.
SFARI.org has been upgraded and enhanced to serve as a virtual institute for autism research, offering several new functions to support the research of, and foster dialogue among, autism researchers:
- SFARI Forum: A password-protected discussion forum in which researchers can engage in open dialogue about current issues in their fields.
- News & Opinion: The site’s enhanced research news hub and online platform to hear from leaders in the autism research community on a range of topics, including genetics, molecular mechanisms, clinical research and cognition. The section will also feature “Papers of the Week,” a list of autism-related scientific publications selected by SFARI.org staff.
- SFARI Wiki: A wiki of autism terms and topics, written and edited by SFARI.org’s community of approved researchers.
The mission of SFARI is to drive autism research forward. Our yearlong re-development of this site reflects our deep dedication to that mission. We look forward to your feedback — and to seeing your participation in the site’s forums — in the months ahead.
SFARI’s mission is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders by funding, catalyzing and driving innovative research of the greatest quality and relevance.
