内容 My main research interest is to understand molecular mechanisms of brain development and disease. My lab employs functional genomics approaches to identify genes upregulated during distinct phases of brain development. In particular, we focus on two main areas: neural proliferation and synapse development and we have identified several candidate genes involved in these processes. Furthermore, we have shown that misregulation of these genes are implicated in diseases such as brain tumors, epilepsy, and schizophrenia. In my seminar I will discuss our most recent findings in these areas.
