Molecular mechanisms of neuronal proliferation, differentiation and migration
My research focuses on understanding basic mechanisms governing brain development using the mouse as a model system. We also seek the opportunity to apply this knowledge towards a better treatment for human neurological disorders. Three major projects are currently pursued in my lab:
1) Function of Reelin in brain development.
2) The phosphatidylinositol pathway in human cortical dysplasia.
3) Role of Dyrk1A in neurogenesis and differentiation.
