Gupta Lab


The Gupta Lab is investigating the genetic basis and neurobiology of autism spectrum disorder, a prominent condition affecting social cognition. The lab is especially interested in understudied populations on the autism spectrum, such as females with autism and those with late-onset, severe regressive autism known as Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD). The lab prioritizes the pursuit of highly multimodal analyses, which encompass clinical characterization, genetics, neuroimaging, eye-tracking, and/or deep learning algorithms. The Gupta lab is led by Abha Gupta MD PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Child Study Center, Neuroscience, and Wu Tsai Institute.
