N of One was founded by parents and researchers who believe that breakthroughs in autism research that will lead to treatments and prevention strategies are possible in our lifetime.
To Facilitate, Fund, and Communicate Breakthroughs in Autism Research
Identify the fundamental biological mechanisms of autism
Autism is now affecting
1 in 68 children
1 in 42 boys in the US
Which is almost 2.5%!
Despite decades of research and billions of dollars spent
We still don't know what autism is
We don't know what causes it
We don't know how to prevent it
We don't have any treatments
Parents are understandably frustrated with this lack of progress, indeed we all should be.
At N of One we believe that things can be done better and look to partner with parents and researchers who share that view.
What We Believe:
A better understanding of autism leading to highly effective treatments and prevention strategies is possible in our lifetime
We can sponsor and catalyze breakthrough autism research that can meaningfully impact TODAY’S generation
In going wherever the data takes us and not be deterred by traditional views, academic resistance, or the status quo
About The Name:
"n" traditionally denotes the sample size, thus an n=1 is a single sample
An “nof1” is single patient trial often disregarded as insignificant
Because of a lack of answers in autism, parents are left to discover how to best help their own "n of 1" We believe families deserve better and with the right research we can have better answers for all.
Every N of One Matters!
