What we do
We are fascinated by the foundations of human brain diversity. Our lab uses villages of human stem cell-derived neural cells to investigate the genetic and molecular origins of phenotypic heterogeneity. We have a particular interest in neurodevelopmental disorders like autism and intellectual disability.
