Cellular modeling may hold the key to unlocking some the most important questions about autism. Alysson R. Muotri, PhD joins William Mobley, MD, PhD to explain how his work is shedding light on not only the pathology of autism but potential new drugs.

On our current trajectory, 300 million excess deaths will occur due to antibiotic resistance to by 2050. What can be done change our path and stop superbugs in their tracks? Victor Nizet, MD discusses the roots and scope of the problem as well as novel solutions.

Why do some people thrive well into old age while others falter, become ill or die young? What can you do to increase the odds that you will live a long and healthy life? Dr. Howard S. Friedman discusses his research, including positive traits and characteristics that lead to longevity as well as emerging findings busting common myths about healthy aging. This lecture is part of the Frank B. Roehr Memorial Lecture Series, which was established by Mr. Roehr's daughter, Suzanne Angelucci, to inform the public on topics associated with the power of humor and positive thinking.

Igor Grant, MD, FRCP(C) pursues research that addresses real world behavioral problems.
