Our lab is interested in studying the normal prenatal development of human brain, and the genes that regulate this process. Abnormalities of the genes regulating human brain development cause a number of neurological disorders including intellectual disability, autism, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy, and we study genetic causes of these conditions directly. Typical projects involve analysis of DNA sequence from patients with genetic disorders, some of whom we see in our clinic, or studies in animal models of human brain development.
