Molecular and Neuronal Mechanism of Autism, Epilepsy, and other Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Our lab is part of McGill University in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Azrieli Centre for Autism Research (ACAR), and the Centre for Research in Neuroscience
We are interested in studying the molecular mechanism and develop treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders, including intellectual disability, epilepsy, and autism. In the Huang lab, we integrate molecular biology, proteomic assays, transcriptional profiling, behavioral assays, and electrophysiology to focus on how copy number variation causes brain dysfunction on molecular, synaptic, circuit, and neurobehavioral levels.
We are also interested in using BioID to identify cell surface molecules regulating neural development and dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders.
