MacART at the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) Annual Meeting – 2019

The International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) recently gathered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for the annual 2019 meeting. From May 1st – 4th, scientists, researchers, clinicians, policy-makers, and self-advocates came together to share and learn about the latest scientific developments in autism research. This event – which included over 1,800 posters, oral presentations, and panels – exemplifies the international importance of advancement in autism care.

MacART was once again well represented at the 18th annual INSAR meeting, giving members an excellent opportunity to share our research findings, exchange ideas and collaborate with other members of the global autism community. This year MacART members contributed to 29 posters, 3 oral presentations, and 2 panel sessions, building on our representation from last year.
