My research group applies the techniques of molecular and statistical genetics to approach clinically relevant problems in neuroscience, with the ultimate goal of understanding gene function in both the pathologic and normal states.  We are currently studying schizophrenia, autism, and specific language impairment. Work directly conducted by my group includes development of phenotype definitions, subject recruitment and assessment, genotyping and statistical analysis for linkage and association studies, comparative genomic analysis, and gene expression studies.  Other areas of particular interest include the role of microRNAs in the control of gene expression in the human brain and enhancements to moderately high throughput genotyping technologies.
