The Fetal Medicine Institute at Children's National Health System presents:
The Second Annual International Symposium on the Fetal Brain
August 24 and 25, 2017
at Washington, DC's iconic Watergate Hotel
This multidisciplinary event features a 360-degree review of advances in understanding of the fetal brain, presented by a panel of world-renowned experts in the fields of maternal-fetal medicine, developmental neuroscience, neurogenetics, fetal and neonatal neurology, and imaging.
While still in progress, our agenda will be broken up into four sessions:
(1) Nurturing Brain Development in the "Ex-utero Fetus:" Can We Mimic the Intra-uterine Milieu?
(2) Advances in Genetic and Epigenetic Diagnosis: What's In It for the Developing Brain?
(3) The Emergence of Consciousness, the Awareness of Pain, and the Roots of Social Engagement
(4) Developmental Origins of Neuropsychiatric Disease
This year, in addition to our general sessions, we are excited to offer breakfast breakout sessions with practical clinical applications designed to address needs and answer questions for all members of our multidisciplinary audience.
