Baylor College of Medicine reports that a new grant to Baylor College of Medicine will build on the ongoing SPARK for Autism study, focusing on fighting disparities and lack of diversity in autism research. SPARK (Simons Foundation Powering Autism Research for Knowledge), is a large-scale nationwide study that seeks to uncover causes of autism by collecting behavioral information and saliva DNA samples from 50,000 individuals with autism and their biological family members.
