DOD Autism Research Program Concept Award: The ARP Concept Award was created in FY07. Since then, 153 Concept Award proposals have been received and 7 have been recommended for funding. The ARP Concept Award supports the exploration of an initial idea or novel observation that could give rise to a testable hypothesis. Presentation of preliminary data is not consistent with the intent of this award mechanism and therefore is not allowed. These awards provide Principal Investigators (PIs) with the opportunity to pursue serendipitous observations. Proposals must describe how the new idea will enhance existing knowledge of ASD or create an entirely new avenue for investigation. Research completed through a Concept Award may provide sufficient preliminary data to enable the PI to prepare a proposal for future research. Given the focus of the award, clinical trials are not acceptable under this mechanism. The FY08 ARP promotes research that will (1) improve clinical outcomes of ASD, (2) lead to better understanding of ASD across the lifespan, including adulthood, of an affected individual, and (3) integrate basic science and clinical observations. To that end, the FY08 ARP encourages proposals that specifically address critical needs of the ASD community. The following areas of research are of particular interest to the FY08 ARP: 1. Co-morbidity (e.g., manifestations such as gastrointestinal disorders, sleep, seizures, tics, immune disorders) 2. Targets for Treating (e.g., clinical, molecular, cellular) 3. Biomarkers and Pathology (e.g., brain and other tissues) 4. Environment (e.g., clinical and basic toxicology, gene/environment interaction) See the Program Announcement for the full Funding Opportunity Description.
