PROVIDENCE – Elena Tenenbaum, a researcher with Women & Infants Hospitals’ Brown Center for the Study of Children at Risk, was awarded a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in translational autism research, to help turn scientific discoveries into clinical treatments.
Tenenbaum’s project, “Attention and Word Learning in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder – Translating Experimental Findings into Intervention,” will be done in collaboration with Stephen Sheinkopf, her primary mentor, at Women & Infants, and with Dima Amso of Brown University.
Tenenbaum’s grant was part of nearly $2.9 million in funding for autism research announced by Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization. •
