About the event
For parking, you may purchase an all-day "A permit" (for $16.25) (valid for the fully day on 11/18/22) by clicking HERE.
We recommend parking in the following lots for “A permits.” Any spot that is designated for “A permits” is a spot you can park in using the permit purchased above.
We highly recommend you purchase the above permit because if you do not purchase the permit above and pay for ‘Visitor Parking’ using the ParkMobile App instead, you will only be able to park in Roth Way Garage for a maximum of 4 hours. Further, L-2 and L-3 do not offer any options for 'Visitor Parking.' It is also much less expensive to use this permit, rather than 'Visitor Parking.' Info about arriving via public transportation is available in the link to 'directions, parking, and COVID-19 info' link above.
Dr. Ruth O’hara, Senior Associate Dean of Research at Stanford University School of Medicine, will give a keynote presentation on Sleep and Autism. Dr. Lawrence Fung, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford and President of BAAC, will lead an interactive session on Community-Based Participatory Research. Dr. Vikaas Sohal, Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF, will present on "What Can We Learn from Mouse Models of Autism?" Dr. Phillippe Mourrain, Associate Professor at Stanford University, will present on "Sleep-Dependent Synaptic Plasticity During Development." Dr. Jennifer Ames, Staff Scientist at Kaiser Permanent of Northern California, will present on "Improving Healthcare of Autistic Individuals: A Focus on the Transition to Adulthood." Dr. Elliott Sherr, Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics at UCSF, will present on "Autism in 2022, On Gene at a Time."
Abstract submission has now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted an abstract!
