Event Details

What is Birkbeck's Big Ideas?

A series of thought provoking FREE events, designed to inspire and bring world class Birkbeck academics to the local community with this latest installment from Dr Angelica Ronald.

Who is Dr Angelica Ronald ?

Dr Ronald conducts scientific research at Birkbeck’s Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, and she is the director of Birkbeck’s Genes Environment Lifespan laboratory, which she established in 2011. Her research aims to identify and understand genetic and environmental causal risk factors for complex neuropsychiatric disorders and their related traits. For over 10 years she has conducted research into the causes of autism and autistic traits. In her research she has employed family, twin, and genome-wide association study designs, amongst others, and she works on several large scale cohort studies in the UK and internationally. Her research has shown that autism and autistic traits in the general population appear to lie on a continuum, with the same causal risk factors implicated for both autistic traits and the clinical condition.

The event is FREE and open to all, but please note that seating is allocated on a first come first served basis.Registration and refreshments start at 6pm and the talk will commence at 6.15pm. We look forward to welcoming you to this Birkbeck's Big Idea event!

Join us next month (Wednesday 14th June 2017) for: 'Studying Languages: Communicating Cultures' (Dr John Walker).
