We developed the current New Jersey Autism Center of Excellence (NJACE) to address the complex and unique features of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) by promoting increased communication and collaboration among autism researchers, educators, practitioners, and autistic individuals and their families to (a) improve our understanding of and ability to diagnose and manage ASD, (b) decrease service disparities, and (c) improve health outcomes for all New Jersey individuals and families affected by ASD.

The NJACE aims to support basic, applied, and translational research into the causes, diagnosis, early detection, prevention, and management of autism.

The RFA for research and training seed grants is now available and we are looking to fund interdisciplinary teams of New Jersey researchers to support the development of competitive federal research or training grants.
