The University of Washington hosts the Undergraduate Research Symposium at Mary Gates Hall every spring to give undergraduates a chance to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. This year, PBS Lab was proud to have four undergraduate interns present at the symposium! Standing side by side, making a small autism research section, Ricarda Bothe, Reilly Dever, Rachelle Lee, and Ravneet Kaur presented in the poster session of the symposium.
Every Spring, researchers from around the world gather at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) to meet with others devoted to advancing knowledge about autism spectrum disorder. In the four day event, scientists and trainees from a variety of different research backgrounds share findings, discuss future avenues, encourage up and coming ASD scientists, and support the research of underrepresented groups. This year, several members of our group traveled to Baltimore to present research findings from the projects in our lab. Posters ranged from Dr. Emily Neuhaus’s Linking Social Motivation to Social Skill: Contributions of Anxiety & Impulsivity to Erin Libsack’s Timing of ASD Diagnosis: Demographic Factors of Influence. PBS lab looks forward to attending the meeting again next year!
