About Dr. Marsha Mailick, Keynote Presenter

“Dr. Marsha R. Mailick is the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) …. The focus of Dr. Mailick’s research is on the life course trajectory of developmental disabilities.

She is interested in how the behavioral phenotype of specific developmental disabilities, including autism, fragile X syndrome, and Down syndrome, changes during adolescence, adulthood, and old age.

In addition, she studies how the family environment affects the development of individuals with disabilities during these stages of life, and reciprocally how parents and siblings of individuals with disabilities are affected.”
