The IDDRC Seminars for Neurodevelopmental Disorders Research, formerly the Autism Seminar series, brings in WashU faculty and other experts across disciplines whose research has particular implications for interventions in neurodevelopmental disorders.
Each lecture lasts about 45 minutes, with the remaining 45 minutes allotted to interactions and discussion with attendees. Appetizers and drinks are provided. Speaker information and reading materials for preparation of each series will be sent out in the weeks leading up to each session. If you would like to be added to a distribution list for these events, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IDDRC Seminars for Neurodevelopmental Disorders Research is brought to you by the Department of Neuroscience and the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC).
