Dr. Mirjana Maletic-Savatic announced as SFARI 2022 Pilot awardee
Dr. Mirjana Maletic-Savatic, Duncan NRI investigator and associate professor at Baylor College of Medicine, is among the 16 investigators from the US and all over the world to be selected by The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) for the 2022 Pilot Awards. She received this grant award to support her project titled, "16p11.2 copy number variant effects on the gene-metabolome coupling."
The goal of SFARI's Pilot Award program is to provide early support for exploratory ideas, particularly those with novel hypotheses, that have the potential to yield transformative results in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research. SFARI plans to commit approximately $4.88 million in funding over the next two years.
