Resource Monday: Researcher Wendy Chung Tells Us What We Do And Don't Know About Autism

Dr. Wendy Chung is the director of clinical research at the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative, which does both basic and applied science to serve people affected by autism spectrum disorders. She also directs the clinical genetics program at Columbia University and uses advanced genomic diagnostics to explore the genetic basis of neurological conditions.

In this informative TED talk, she gives us an overview on what we've learned about autism, sorting facts from misinformation.

Dr. Chung's work is keeping us on the forefront of autism research and potential therapies, examining genetic and environmental factors, as well as the efficacy of various therapies. For a more detailed look at some of the research, check out this page at the Simons Foundation Website (links are at the bottom).
