Public evening lecture: Autism research and the human experience

This evening explores an area of autism research that strives to understand the human experience. The presentation will be led by Dr Emma Burrows who leads a research program at the Florey that aims to understand the neurobiology underlying cognitive disorders. Her research applies novel technologies to assess behavioural changes in mouse models of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Dementia with a focus on translation to the clinic.

Dr Burrows will be accompanied by guest parent, Carmen Lahiff-Jenkins whose son has autism.
