Our lab is located at McGill University in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, and the Centre for Research in Neuroscience
Research in our laboratory focuses on three important questions relevant to brain development and disorders:
1. How does Copy Number Variants (CNVs), the most common human genetic variation, cause developmental brain disorders including neurodevelopmental disorders and autism?
2. What are the molecular and neural mechanisms underlying neuronal connectivity in development and disease?
3. How do we modulate gene dosage imbalance caused by CNVs to treat and reverse developmental brain disorders?
