All research funded by us is subject to rigorous independent review before recommendations for funding are made to our Board of Trustees.
Our various committees include autistic people and family members who advise us on matters of policy, fundraising and communication.
Our scientific advisors give their time freely to conduct and support our peer review process.
Scientific Review Panel
Each funding proposal we receive is evaluated and scored by independent reviewers and our Scientific Review Panel.
