Research Summary

We are interested in investigating the kinase signaling pathways important for neuronal development to understand how their dysfunction leads to neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Our lab utilizes a combination of approaches in chemical-genetics, induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology, live cell imaging and quantitative proteomics to investigate the role of kinases in neuronal development and disease.
