On Tuesday, October 8th, Burke Medical Research Institute’s Weekly Seminars is pleased to host Catherine E. Lord, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain at New York Presbyterian Hospital and Professor of Psychology at Weill Cornell Medical College. Lord was a member of the Neurodevelopment Disorders Work Group for the newly revised Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and has been involved in developing diagnostic instruments for autism spectrum disorders, including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R), considered gold standards for research diagnoses. She is renowned for her work on longitudinal studies of children with autism, including an ongoing study that has followed children from North Carolina and Chicago from age 2 through their teens. Lord’s seminar, “What Longitudinal Research in Autism Can Suggest about Early Intervention,” will be take place at 12:30pm in the Rosedale Conference Room.
Since 2003, the BMRI Weekly Seminars has invited renowned scientists from across the country to share their research with the Burke community. Seminar speakers also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the BMRI investigators. Check out upcoming speakers here.
