A collaborator from Australia visited the lab

Over the past few years, we’ve been working with Professor Angela Morgan and a scientist in her group, Dr. Amanda Brignell, both of whom are speech and language pathologists at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, part of Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. Drs. Morgan and Brignell have been working with us to look for signs of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) in some individuals with autism. Recently, Dr. Brignell won the Hugh Rogers Fellowship that allowed her to travel to Boston and visit for a few weeks to continue her research. We very much enjoyed her time in the lab (complete with a crash course in the geography of Australia!) and look forward to continuing to work with her!
