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

March 25, 2022 @ 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, 2022 @ 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, 2022 @ 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.

Seminar – Alex Pollen, PhD – Topic: Studying Genetic Control of Human Brain Specializations and Vulnerabilities

April 29, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wiley Conference Center

We study how genetic changes that accumulated over the last 6 million years of human evolution influence specialized features of brain development using single cell genomics, cerebral organoid models of ape brain development, and genome engineering.
