Edinburgh Neuroscience Christmas Public Lecture

Understanding Disorders of the Developing Brain in the 21st Century – by Professor Peter Kind

13 December, 6-7pm, Anatomy Lecture Theatre

Please join us for the Neuroscience Christmas Public Lecture, which will be delivered by Professor Peter Kind, Director of the Patrick Wild Centre.

Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disabilities affect 1-2% of our population yet we still have no rational therapeutic intervention to help affected individuals. Despite the current lack of medicines, novel technologies in the fields of genetics, imaging and preclinical models make the future look bright for discovering the fundamental biological mechanisms underlying severe forms of these conditions.

In this Christmas lecture, Peter Kind will examine the current state of research into Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disabilities and examine the potential impact of novel technologies on our ability to translate discovery-based brain sciences into real clinical impact.
