C-RAIND is proud to host a Distinguished Speakers Series.

Our seminar series brings two renowned speakers to campus every year.

Seminar Series Mission

The mission of the C-RAIND's Seminar Series is to create an active, collaborative community at MSU around research in autism, intellectual, and other neurodevelopmental disabilities research. The series is designed to foster ongoing communication and discussions among researchers, and to promote interdisciplinary and cross-institutional collaborations.

Distinguished Speaker Series

The Distinguished Speaker series are intended to provide a venue to disseminate and discuss innovative research and results, provoke conversations that matter, and to foster relationships and networking with national and international experts in the field.
