MIDB Well-Represented at International Society for Autism Research Conference
A large number of MIDB members and students presented at last month's International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) conference in Stockholm, Sweden. The annual conference is intended to provide autism researchers from around the world with a focused opportunity to share the rapidly moving scientific investigation of autism.
"Having strong representation at the leading international autism research conference has firmly put MIDB on the map as a leading autism research center," said Casey Burrows, PhD, LP. "It felt like everywhere I went, I saw some impact of MIDB, either by running into former MIDB trainees, expanding my network through MIDB connections, or seeing talks that align with the research that's happening at MIDB."
Burrows led the panel discussion, Divergent Trajectories Associated with Genetic Liability for ASD and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders, which included Jed Elison, PhD, as a panelist.
Other INSAR panels that included MIDB members were:
ASD Diagnostic (In)Stability in a High-Familial Likelihood Sample from 24 Months to School-Age: Qualitative and Quantitative Impressions from Case Reviews included Burrows, Carolyn Lasch, MA, and Chimei Lee, PhD, LP
Sex Differences in Timing of ASD Diagnosis in a High-Familial Likelihood Sample included Burrows and Elison
The Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder Among 8-Year-Old American Indian/Alaskan Native Children in the ADDM Network from 2002-2018 included Amy Esler, PhD, LP
"INSAR is a premiere international autism research conference, and the number of MIDB researchers presenting in 2023, when the conference was held overseas in Sweden, reflects the high level of commitment and recognition for the diverse work of MIDB autism researchers," said Esler.
