Newest Presentation: "Out of the Past: Old Exposures, Heritable Effects, and Emerging Concepts for Autism Research"
This spring and summer I'll be giving a number of talks on the germline disruption hypothesis of autism and the important role for "citizen science" in improving autism research. You can see the slides from my upcoming talk, "Out of the Past: Old Exposures, Heritable Effects, and Emerging Concepts for Autism Research," April 8 at Florida State University here.
Jill Escher, Escher Fund for Autism, is a California-based science philanthropist and mother of two children with severe autism, focused on the question of how environmentally induced germline disruptions may be contributing to today's epidemics of neurodevelopmental impairment. You can read about her discovery of her intensive prenatal exposure to synthetic hormone drugs here. Jill is also president of Autism Society San Francisco Bay Area.
