Exciting news, in less than two months the world's largest autism research conference is taking place in San Francisco. IMFAR, the International Meeting for Autism Research, will bring together about 2,500 researchers and stakeholders, all sharing research and research-oriented information for three days, May 11-13.
If you are interested in autism research— causation, genomics, diagnostics, therapeutics, epidemiology, etc — you might considering attending; it's a rare treat to have this event in our own backyard.
