Advances in Autism Conference 2019


Our 23rd annual Advances in Autism Conference, established in 1996, brings together academic, parent and community groups to participate in thoughtful and informative presentations. The goals of the conference are to teach attendees about recent advances in understanding autism – the causes, brain development, and current treatments.

This year, the Advances in Autism Conference will focus on Drug Discovery and Development in autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Drugs are developed to improve quality of life. The drug discovery and development process is exciting and extremely challenging. To ensure safety and effectiveness, bringing a new drug to market for patients takes many years.

From determining genetic factors to target for treatment – to completing pre-clinical research and clinical trials - there are a variety of stakeholders who have key roles in this process.

The speakers at the Conference will represent biotech, pharma, academia and family foundations – who will explain the many facets of the drug discovery and development process.

Speaker information coming soon!
