Advances in Autism Research and Treatment: Insights from the Israeli Desertautism research 

Thursday, May 11th, 7:00 pm
Congregation Emanu-El

Join us for a presentation by three leading researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU). Learn about the cutting-edge science and therapeutic approaches being developed at BGU’s interdisciplinary Negev Autism Center. 

Experts at the Negev Autism Center use neuroimaging, molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, computer science and behavioral analysis techniques to examine autism from every angle. The goal is to identify objective biological measures that allow for much earlier autism diagnoses, and to distinguish between different sub-types of autism. These discoveries can enable clinicians to use earlier targeted intervention for the highest quality of life for children with autism.

Researchers include:

Dr. Ilan Dinstein
BGU Department of Psychology
Zlotowski Center for Neuroscience

Dr. Gal Meiri
Child Psychiatrist, Head of Preschool Psychiatric Unit, Soroka University Medical Center
Faculty Member, BGU Faculty of Health Sciences

Dr. Idan Menashe
Department of Public Health and Zlotowski Center for Neuroscience
BGU Faculty of Health Sciences

Admission is free. R.S.V.P. required by May 4, 2017. Call 415-927-2119 or email: northwest@aabgu.org
