Aug 9 webinar on understanding causes and treatment of autism

July 29, 2016

Autism Speaks-funded researcher Jacqueline Crawley will discuss the development of animal models that advance medicines development.

Neuroscientist Jacqueline Crawley, an Autism Speaks funded researcher, invites the autism community to attend her free webinar – Autism: Understanding the Causes and Developing Effective Treatments – on Tuesday, Aug. 9, from 2 to 3 pm Eastern.
 
Dr. Crawley is the Robert E. Chason Endowed Chair in Translational Research at the University of California-Davis MIND Institute and a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at UC Davis. Her research seeks to understand the causes of autism and explore possible treatments. She uses laboratory mice to evaluate the consequences of autism-linked genetic mutations and the potential benefits of pharmacological interventions.
 
Autism Speaks has funded Dr. Crawley’s development of improved animal models of autism with two research grants. This work is part of Autism Speaks Preclinical Autism Consortium for Therapeutics (PACT).
 
Dr. Crawley’s webinar is part of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation’s weekly Meet the Scientist series.
