Autism Registry
www.IANproject.org
Kennedy Kreiger Institute announced the launch of the Interactive Autism Network (IAN), the nation’s first national online registry, funded by Autism Speaks. It is designed to accelerate the pace of autism research by linking researchers & families. Both have questions about autism. IAN uniquely brings together these two groups to find answers. Anyone impacted by ASD can become part of IAN’s online community to stay informed about autism research, feedback & make their voices heard

The Sarah Jane Brain Project http://www.thebrainproject.org/
Their mission is to create a model system for children suffering from all Pediatric Acquired Brain Injuries. PTBI is the leading cause of death and disability for children under 15 years of age in the United States. Over 5,000 deaths occur annually due to PTBI, over 17,000 children annually suffer from permanent disability due to PTBI, and over 1,000,000 children are hospitalized each year due to PTBI. In addition, since most children's brains aren't considered developed until age 21 or 22, many of the Military Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with TBI are actually considered PTBI. Pediatric Acquired Brain Injuries (PABI) include all traumatic causes plus brain injuries caused by brain tumors, strokes, meningitis, insufficient oxygen, poisoning, ischemia and substance abuse.
