On 26 March, Joseph Gleeson discussed his use of DNA sequencing in unique populations to identify the causes of rare types of autism and to help find treatments, including dietary supplements.

He also highlighted advances over the past few years in understanding pediatric brain disorders, especially the emerging connection between autism and epilepsy and amino acid metabolism. Gleeson is associate professor of neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego, where he directs the Neurosciences Microscopy Imaging Core.
