Autism BrainNet begins tissue distribution

Autism BrainNet announces the initiation of brain tissue distribution to investigators. Initially, distributed tissue will be restricted to donations previously collected by the Autism Tissue Program (ATP). In order to apply for tissue, investigators should submit a short research abstract and fill out this form and upload the required documentation.

Complete applications will be reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee. Approved investigators will be contacted by a representative of Autism BrainNet to discuss specific tissue needs and plan for tissue shipment. For additional inquiries please email

We anticipate that distribution of the newly acquired tissue collected under the auspices of Autism BrainNet will begin in the fall of 2016.
