Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain (SIDB)

 

Members of the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation are part of the recently funded Simons Foundation Initiative for Autism Research. The programme which is funded by an initial 5 year grant of £20m will bring together inter-disciplinary research teams from across the University to develop new treatments for Autism. Informatics researchers will be contributing expertise in Systems Neuroscience; developing novel methodologies for the integration and analysis of the broad spectrum of experimental and clinical data arising from this exciting new initiative.
