GRASP began collaborating with SPARK in 2016. SPARK’s purpose is to “provide researchers with medical and genetic information from tens of thousands of individuals and families affected by autism. These data will power important new research that aims to advance the understanding of autism and provide meaningful information and resources to participants.”
