RASL Presents at Symposium hosted by New Vanderbilt Autism Initiative

In August, a new Vanderbilt-led initiative entitled the “Vanderbilt Initiative for Autism, Innovation, and the Workforce” launched with a primary goal of facilitating the transition of adolescents with Autism into stable paid employment. This past Friday, the new group hosted a University-wide symposium to discuss a range of Autism-related research going on at Vanderbilt.

The “Vanderbilt Surprising Connections in Autism and Innovation” symposium, held at Peabody Commons, included speakers from the School of Medicine, the School of Engineering, and the Owen Graduate School of Management, as well as nearly two dozen poster presentations.

RASL members Zhabo Zheng, Dayi Bian, Guangtao Nie, Joshua Wade, and Huan Zhao presented posters for a variety of projects a the event.
