As the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports staggering increases in cases of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), top researchers in Columbus, Ohio, have an unprecedented opportunity to unlock and address this growing public health crisis thanks to the generosity of Bill Ingram, CEO of White Castle System, Inc., and director of The Ohio State University Foundation, and his wife, Marci Ingram. The Ingrams have committed to donating $10 million to The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children's Hospital to support collaborative ASD research.
