My laboratory seeks to identify genetic factors for language impairments. As animal models of language development are of limited utility, we examine DNA from families segregating specific language impairment or autism as part of two separate but interacting projects. These projects are heavily interdisciplinary, utilizing a wide range of molecular and computational methods developed in-house and though close collaborations with experts in statistics and computer science. We hope that use of genetics will allow for identification of at-risk children to promote early intervention. More information can be found here: http://mathmed.org/#Christopher_Bartlett
