Basic Research

Our researchers in basic science investigate the most basic components of human development: genes, gene networks, cell biology, neural development. Methodologies include animal models such as mice, and zebrafish, and cell models such as Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells and organoids. 

Basic Research


Investigators focus on the genetic basis for neuropsychiatric disorders from gene discovery to using gene knock-outs in model species to test promising drug treatments.

Developmental Neurobiology

The developmental neurobiology pod includes investigations of normative neural de-velopment, neural cell differentiation, neurochemistry, and neurogenetics both in typical and a-typical...
