At this year’s annual meeting of the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR), 3rd – 6th May in Stockholm, our CANDY consortium was well presented and among the senior PIs also our Early Career Researcher had the chance to present their work and results in oral or poster presentation. A special highlight was the INSAR Award Ceremony, where our CANDY Coordinator Prof Jan Buitelaar from Radboudumc, NL received the INSAR Lifetime Achievement Award.
He was awarded for “his earlier work in autism, which included a population screening and early detection study among 30,000 children at age 14 months and studies on the autism-ADHD overlap and his current active research, which focuses on translational studies aiming to identify new molecular targets for autism and ADHD through matching preclinical models to human imaging genetics studies.”
Prof Declan Murphey from Kings College London, CANDY collaborator and companion, gave the Laudatio.
The entire CANDY consortium congratulates you, Jan, for this amazing achievement and your constant work and effort to advance autism research and its comorbitidies 👏
