Brown Bag Series

Brown Bag Series


Our Center hosts monthly Brown Bag Talks for Center faculty members, graduate students, and students to learn about what is going on among the many departments and labs under the Center’s umbrella. Talks cover recent grants received, the latest findings from research studies, and ongoing projects. These talks are meant to integrate the various autism focused groups within San Diego State so that collaboration can broaden.
