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, and to foster relationships and networking with national and international experts in the field. The Series consists of lectures and presentations by invited speakers who are renowned researchers in the autism, intellectual, and neurodevelopmental disabilities field.

Brown Bag Series

The Brown Bag Series gives faculty an opportunity to introduce their ongoing research and receive feedback from their peers. The Brown Bags are intended for researchers to share their current ongoing research and receieve friendly feedback, insight, and ideas from others in the research community. Research at any stage is welcome, from brainstorming initial project ideas to sharing methodological problems for input to considering directions for additional research. We hope that by sharing our research challenges at all levels we can offer help to colleagues and tackle problems together.
