Autism Seminar Series

After a summer hiatus, the Autism Seminar Series will be resume in the Fall for the 2016-2017 series (dates listed below – be sure to mark your calendars early).  The inaugural talk for the series on September 19, 2016 will be from a visiting lecturer, Dr. Mu Yang, an animal models expert who will discuss behavioral phenotypes of transgenic mouse models of monogenic autistic syndromes.

Over the summer, we encourage anyone interested to consider the INSAR Summer Institute.  The International Society for Autism Research is hosting a FREE series of six weekly online seminars on the familial aspects of autism.  The seminars run every Thursday from June 23-July 28, and will cover a variety of topics.  View the topics and more information HERE.  Dr. Constantino will be one of the presenters on Thursday, July 28 at 9am CST on “The Broader Autism Phenotype”.
