Abstract

The 2016 Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Study Group (FASDSG) meeting was titled “Rehabilitation in FASD: Potential Interventions and Challenges”. During the previous decades, studies with human subjects and animal models have improved much of our understanding of the mechanisms underlying FASD, putting the scientific community in a good position to test hypotheses that can lead to potential therapeutic interventions. During the conference, two keynote speakers addressed potential interventions used in different fields and their applicability to FASD research. The conference also included updates from several government agencies, short presentations by junior and senior investigators that showcased the latest in FASD research, and award presentations. The conference was closed by a talk by Dr. Charles Goodlett, the recipient of the 2016 Henry Rosett award.
