3rd Annual Isabelle Rapin Conference on Communication Disorders: Rett Syndrome 

On a rainy Wednesday in early December 2014, over 100 doctors and scientists crowded into the Price Center’s LeFrak Auditorium to hear keynote speaker Dr. Huda Zoghbi, of the Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Michael Green, of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and Monica Coenraads, executive director of the Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT), along with faculty from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center.   The speakers presented on many topics which ranged from advances in translational research to exploring several novel therapeutic approaches related to common comorbidities specific to Rett Syndrome patients.
