Neural Development

Multiple CIBR investigators are studying the basic mechanisms of brain development using the methods of cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics. Defects in brain development can lead to cognitive, motor, and intellectual disability, as well as neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, spina bifida and several psychiatric disorders. Our goal is to leverage our basic science findings to better diagnose and develop novel therapies for treating or preventing neurodevelopmental disorders.
