Autism Research lectures bring together scientists and scholars to discuss diverse and important topics related to autism.
Video replay of this event will be available shortly. Please check back at a later date.
On October 21, 2020, Evan Eichler will discuss his research on the genetics of autism and related neurodevelopmental conditions.
His talk is part of the Simons Foundation Autism Research lecture series.
Over the last decade, tremendous advances in sequencing technology have allowed scientists to study the full spectrum of human genetic variation and its relationship to disorders associated with mental health. In this lecture, Eichler will present his laboratory’s recent work studying specific forms of both inherited and sporadic mutations to identify new genes underlying autism and developmental delay. He will also discuss promising paths forward for understanding more complex genetic forms of these disorders.
Registration is required for this free event.
