It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of Autism Dispatch, a twice-monthly publication from the Center for Autism Research (CAR). Autism Dispatch is designed to keep you informed of scientific developments, upcoming events, and practical information that you can use in your daily life. While most issues of Autism Dispatch will contain a diverse set of topics, some will cover a particular theme in greater detail.
CAR researchers have published hundreds of scientific papers since we were established more than 6 years ago. This work would not have been possible without the generous support of you, our community, both in terms of fundraising and volunteering for specific studies. Autism Dispatch provides us another opportunity to give back to you!
Autism Dispatch will highlight research findings from CAR, focusing on both basic science and clinical translational science. It will be a mix of findings that are hot off the presses and ones that are older but especially worthy of highlighting. In many issues, we will also cover breaking research of significance from across the globe. In addition, each issue will feature an article from the new CAR Autism Roadmap™.
We hope you add Autism Dispatch to your “must read list.” We also welcome feedback about which elements you find particularly informative!
