From Microscope to Stethoscope demystifies autism.

The prestigious lecture series from the Research institute of the MUHC brings us a new understanding on autism,  based on the latest scientific findings.

Recognized world-wide for his research on autism, Dr Eric Fombonne will give us an insight on some of his major results that helped to shape the autism clinic of the Montreal Children's Hospital into the first of its kind in Quebec, both in number of patients and in quality of care. He will also unveil some of his projects for the future that carry many hopes for the patients and their families. The lecture will take place on October 22nd, 2008.
