22 June 2016
The Presenter

Donna Werling

Postdoctoral scholar, State Lab and Sanders Lab, University of California, San Francisco

Donna Werling’s work focuses on the etiology of neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism, and investigates how sexually dimorphic biology contributes to sex-differential prevalence in autism.

On 22 June, Donna Werling discussed strategies for investigating autism’s skewed sex ratio and described clues from her work on gene expression in male and female brains.

You can watch a complete replay of the webinar above.
