Welcome to the Louvi Lab

We investigate the molecular mechanisms governing the development of the mammalian brain and are particularly interested in addressing how the perturbation of basic biological mechanisms leads to clinically significant brain pathologies. Working closely with other research groups within the Yale Program on Neurogenetics, we study the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying brain disorders associated with specific genetic lesions, aiming to gain insight into fundamental neurodevelopmental processes and to provide information relevant for the design of rational therapeutic approaches.
