The IDDRC@WUSTL Sponsors several educational series geared towards stimulating research collaborations among faculty and students.

IDDRC Seminar Series

Formerly called the Autism Seminar Series, the IDDRC Seminar Series brings in WU faculty and other experts across disciplines whose research has particular implications for interventions in neurodevelopmental disabilities. Each lecture lasts 90 minutes, with includes half of the time allocated to a presentation and the remaining time allotted to interactions and discussion with attendees. Appetizers and drinks are provided. Upcoming dates and speakers are listed on our homepage and events calendar. To receive e-mail notifications, please contact Daniel Gray.

Developmental Psychopathology Series

This series is a component of the Psychiatry Department’s Research Seminars and examines relevant research to the development of psychiatric syndromes in children. The purpose is to promote research across perspectives of genetics, genetic epidemiology, psychology, psychiatry, bioinformatics, social work, and developmental biology with the goal of provoking creative discussion, sharing information on state-of the art research methods, and to generate new ideas and directions in research for investigators at all levels. Presentations are usually an hour, with 20 minutes for questions and discussions. Lunch is provided. Upcoming dates and speakers are listed on our homepage and events calendar. To receive e-mail notifications, please contact Daniel Gray.

Developmental Imaging Group

The Developmental Imaging Group meets twice a month on Wednesdays from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM in East Building Room 3400B.

The Developmental Imaging Group examines current research in developmental cognitive neuroscience approaches to intellectual and developmental disabilities and developmental psychopathology research. Presenters typically share work-in-process and receive critical feedback from colleagues and senior faculty. Upcoming dates and speakers are listed on our homepage. To receive e-mail notifications, please contact Alecia Vogel-Hammen.
