BioAutism awards small grants of up to $5,000 to autism research projects that are assessed to have merit by the organisation's Scientific Advisory Committee.
Wah Chin Boon
The inaugural BioAutism small grant was awarded to Dr Wah Chin Boon for her research investigating the in utero effects of endocrine disruptors in autism using a mouse model. More
specifically, Dr Boon examined whether in utero exposure to diethylhexylphthalate (DEHP) at FDA approved levels would result in autistic like behaviour and brain phenotype in mouse offspring.
