Dr. Dennis Wall gave a talk "Connectivity and the Rise of Autism Research" discussing the autism research connectome at the Autism Consortium's 2013 Research Symposium in Boston. Video of the presentation should be available soon.
Dennis P. Wall (HMS) and Peter J. Tonellato (HMS, UWM, ZSPH) are invited speakers in the Amazon sponsored event "re:Invent" (November 12th-15th, Las Vegas) presenting a keynote lecture titled "The promise and problem of translational genetics and a step to the clouded solution of scalable clinical whole genome sequencing."
The Wall Lab has launched a new website that will advance our research into use of home videos and web technology for autism detection, and bring it a step closer to clinical applicability.
PuzzleMouse provides a way for parents to participate in this research by uploading short videos of their children who have been tested for an Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are seeking participation from caregivers of children 7 years and younger.
We would like to welcome Leticia Díaz Beltrán back to the Wall Lab for a year-long exchange from the University of Jaén.
Leticia will be investigating the genetic overlap between autism and autoimmune disease.
Her stay at Harvard Medical School is a product of last year's partnership between the two institutions.
More details (and a chance to practice your Spanish) to be found at U. Jaén's site.
