Gov't Invests in Autism, Cerebral Palsy and FASD Research

An excellent Network doing excellent work. Nice to see some money flowing to them. Looking forward to hearing about progress and results.

Mike Lake, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Industry, on behalf of his colleague, the Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science and Technology), today announced the renewal of funding for NeuroDevNet. This Vancouver-based national network will receive an additional $19.6 million to support collaborative research aimed at developing a new understanding of, and treatments for, children affected by neurodevelopmental disorders, specifically autism, cerebral palsy and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).
