Research Abstract:

Our laboratory utilizes a variety of techniques spanning from human molecular genetics and informatics to mouse behavioral neuroscience and neuroanatomy. We develop and employ mouse models of psychiatric disorder, particularly those that mimic genetic variations we’ve identified from human patient populations, with the goal of trying to understand the cellular and molecular underpinnings of these disorders. We are particularly focused on the neurodevelopmental disorder of autism.
