Welcome from the Scientific Director

NeuroDevNet’s Annual Brain Development Conference is the premier North American meeting for understanding health and disorders in the developing brain. Our fourth annual conference focussed on cross-cutting themes drawing from a growing body of knowledge about the diagnosis and treatment of conditions including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), cerebral palsy (CP) and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) being generated within our network, and through the groundbreaking research of our international network of colleagues and collaborators.

We invite you to join us, to glimpse the frontiers of developmental neuroscience.

On the horizon is deepened understanding of the continuum from neurodevelopment to neurodegeneration – and exploration of novel therapeutics, including prevention and treatment strategies – and the opportunity to learn about exciting new initiatives accelerating the transition for promising interventions from pilot studies to commercialization. Through this virtual conference, you will be able to revisit or join us for the first time in the unfolding story of the developing brain, and the dynamic, innovative environment at NeuroDevNet’s Annual Brain Development Conference.
