MMR Vaccines and Autism: Holding Science to Higher Standards as We Go Forward

Since last week, media outlets have swarmed around allegations of faked data in the landmark 1998 study considered by many to have launched the decade-long autism-vaccine controversy.

MMR Vaccines and Autism: Holding Science to Higher Standards as We Go Forward

In light of this latest turn (you can read more about it, here), we spoke to autism expert Dr. Susan Hyman. In the clip below, she talks about how we can move beyond fears that remain after years of advocacy based on poor or insufficient data – and what we must demand of medical science going forward.

To hear Dr. Hyman’s insights, watch the clip below.

Did you know that the URMC’s Division of Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Pediatrics – in collaboration with the Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities – houses one of the largest Autism Spectrum treatment and research programs in New York State? In addition to diagnostic assessment and clinical treatment, school and community education and consultation, the Division also provides Information and Referral Services and web-based resources, all designed to assist people affected by Autism and those who care for them.
