Interdisciplinary Training Conference in Developmental Disabilities  

This conference is designed to dramatically change the training of the next generation of researchers studying a wide range of developmental disabilities, from autism to Down syndrome. The conference capitalizes on an existing infrastructure of training programs and is designed to encourage the integration of behavioral science and neuroscience in the research of the next generation of scholars. Such integration is critical for translational research efforts that can lead to improved outcomes for people with disabilities and their families. Project Status
