Professional Statement
The long-term goal of research in the laboratory is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control neural circuit formation and plasticity. We are particularly interested in elucidating novel signal transduction pathways that regulate essential neurodevelopmental and regenerative processes such as synaptogenesis, dendritic and axonal growth and guidance, and cell migration. In addition to investigating how these processes are normally regulated, we are examining how defects in these pathways contribute to neurological disorders such as autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disabilities and whether targeting these pathways can promote recovery following nervous system injury or disease. To accomplish these goals, we utilize both in vitro and in vivo rodent models and employ a wide variety of state-of-the-art genetic, molecular, cellular, biochemical, electrophysiological, and behavioral approaches.
