The Genetics of Autism
June 23, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Join pioneering autism researcher, Matthew State, MD, PhD, who will discuss the profound scientific opportunities that are rapidly accelerating progress in autism research.
The advent of genome sequencing has allowed researchers to make significant progress in identifying genetic risk factors for autism. Dr. State has led this effort and just recently published research that found distinct sets of genetic defects that could lead to autism.
Dr. State will discuss his research and the potential for better and earlier detection methods, as well as the possibility for potential treatments.
