Understanding neurodevelopmental disorders causing autism and epilepsy


   Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine

   Applications accepted all year round  Awaiting Funding Decision/Possible External Funding

About the Project

We study epilepsy and epigenetic diseases. We identify disease-causing genes, decipher disease pathophysiology, and improve the management of children affected by these conditions. See for example our work here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-06014-6 and here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41436-020-00950-9

The project involves using cell and mouse models to better understand the pathophysiology of specific neurodevelopmental disorders. A better understand of disease mechanisms, for example understanding which cells or organelles are most affected, may lead to the development of better targeted therapies.

Funding Notes

Additional funding for the project is pending.
Students should have CVs making them competitive for student awards (high grades, previous awards/presentations/publications)
