  • Autism Spectrum Disorders: From Genes to Targets to Treatments

    Tuesday, April 26, 2011 | 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group and the New York Chapter of the American Chemical Society

    Autism spectrum disorders are neurodevelopmental syndromes that affect up to 1% of the population.  There are no effective treatments for the core diagnostic symptoms of impaired social interactions, communication deficits, repetitive behaviors, and restricted interests.  In this symposium, we will explore and discuss emerging areas of research that are laying the foundation for development of novel therapeutics to treat Autism Spectrum Disorders.

    This event will also be broadcast as a webinar.
