Proposals are invited to examine the possible metabolic, molecular, genetic or other response to mercury as it relates to autism. Examples of studies that would be given high priority include: the epidemiology of autism and mercury exposure; the pathophysiology of mercury at the cellular level; ways the body can detoxify from mercury exposure; chelation therapy; studies that noninvasively document mercury exposure; the role of mercury in the pathophysiology of autism; ways in which mercury exposure influences the immune response; and genetic susceptibility to mercury. Projects will be funded at a level of $40,000-$100,000 a year for one or two years. Principal investigators must have an academic and/or non-profit institutional affiliation. Submit a two-page letter of intent describing the proposed project to: CAN Research Programs, Mercury RFP, P. O. Box 36188, Los Angeles, CA 90036-0188, USA.
