Autism is thought to affect 1/16 kids by 2033 How did we get here? What can we learn from COVID that can help us figure out the etiology behind autism? Is autism a brain etiology or a gut etiology? What are the treatment options in the future to look for? The lecture will look at findings from the microbiome of over 100 families with autism to assess similar and different microbes that could possibly help us differentiate gut vs brain pathway within the families.
