Seminar – Tarik Haydar, PhD – “Maturation of the Oligodendrocyte Lineage in Down Syndrome: Lessons from Forebrain, Spinal Cord and from Stem Cells”

February 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Tarik Haydar, PhD

The Haydar Laboratory is focused on forebrain development and function. A major focus is the study of how forebrain stem and progenitor cells generate the extraordinary level of neuronal diversity and circuit complexity during development.

Seminar – Jed Elison, PhD – “Towards a New Era of Early Autism Spectrum Disorder Identification”

February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Jed Elison, PhD

Dr. Elison, Director of the ELAB, is an associate professor at the Institute of Child Development. He completed his graduate training at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and postdoctoral training at the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include the developmental processes and neural mechanisms that support specialized information processing, as well as the putative mechanisms that underlie atypical development.

Seminar – Randolph Ashton, PhD – “Bioengineering Human CNS Morphogenesis for Regulatory Science Applications”

March 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Randolph Ashton, PhD

The goal of Ashton’s research is to bioengineering human tissues that can be used as tools or therapeutics to prevent or cure central nervous system (CNS) disorders. His lab currently melds state of the art biomaterial approaches with novel human neural stem cells derivation protocols to bioengineer brain and spinal cord cells and tissue models in vitro.

Virtual Seminar – Matthew Maenner, PhD – Topic: Epidemiology of Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wiley Conference Center

I study the frequency, causes, and consequences of developmental disabilities (such as autism, cerebral palsy, and fragile X syndrome). I’m passionate about using data to better understand the situations of persons with disabilities.

Seminar – Gabriel Dichter, PhD – “Reward Processing in Autism”

April 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wiley Conference Center

We are dedicated to the use of neuroscience methods to better understand psychiatric disorders. Research methods include psychophysiology, functional MRI, PET/MR, eye-tracking, and behavioral approaches. Our strategy is to first validate methods in non-clinical contexts, then to apply paradigms in psychiatric conditions, and finally to test our measures as potential mechanistic endpoints in clinical trials.

Seminar – Yong-hui Jiang, MD, PhD – Topic: Genetic and Epigenetic Bases of Human Diseases and Neurodevelopmental Disorders

April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wiley Conference Center

I am physician scientist active both in basic research and clinical practice. My research interests are to 1) uncover the genetic and epigenetic bases of neurodevelopmental disorders or rare diseases with neurodevelopmental defects; 2) model genetic diseases using human patients derived cellular models and genetic mutant mice; 3) understand the circuit and molecular mechanisms underlying autism spectrum disorder; 4) develop novel molecular and epigenetic targeted therapies for genetic and epigenetic diseases.
