Description

This present symposium is being held in order to identify those areas and techniques of research currently being carried out in Australia which could be harnessed to produce significant outcomes in early biological detection of ASD before the onset of behavioural symptoms. Such research is also expected to advance understanding of the underlying aetiology of autism and thus lead to new treatments/interventions for the condition.
Themes: (i) autism etiology, {ii) biomarkers/diagnosis, (iii) treatment/therapies, and (iv) comorbidities/epidemiological issues.
Other aims: (i) to discuss how to interact with biotech companies to produce significant outcomes in some/all of these themes, (ii) to make people aware of the depth and breadth of biological ASD research in Australia; (iii) to provide networking and collaboration opportunities for these researchers.
