USC receives share of federal autism research grant

A $10-million federal grant from the National Science Foundation will go toward USC and eight other universities across the country to further autism research, according to the Associated Press.

The grant will fund the development of a computer system that screens young children for development disorders, especially autism.

The grant money will be shared among the nine universities who received the award: Boston University, Carnegie Mellon, Emory University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech University and the Marcus Institute autism research center in Atlanta.

The USC Keck School of Medicine joined forces with the Marino Autism Research Institute in March in an effort to create multidisplinary approaches to the disorder.
