Research Involving SSC@IAN Families

Are you curious what your fellow Simons Simplex Community families are doing? Some of them continue to contribute to autism research through their involvement in ongoing projects at hospitals and universities in the United States. You will be contacted directly if you qualify for a particular study. Also, see the list of articles about scientific discoveries made with the help of SSC families.

Current research projects, locations and researchers

  • Research is happening at SSC@IAN! The sponsors of the original SSC project are seeking updates on your family, and you can participate entirely online at IAN Research.
  • Has your child with ASD turned 18? Take a brief survey so he/she can stay involved! A new survey is available that will allow your adult child to stay active in SSC@IAN. It takes less than 5 minutes to complete! To learn more about this survey, click here.
