Identifying ASD-associated Genetic Risk in the Chromatin Landscape of the Developing Cortex
2019 Predoctoral Fellowships
San Francisco, California
This study will investigate rare and common ASD-associated genetic risk in non-coding areas of the genome that affect chromatin in the developing brain. This work will generate a single-cell catalog of important gene regulators in the developing human cortex and identify ASD-associated variants that could alter their activity, potentially uncovering novel targets for treating the core symptoms of ASD.
Grant Term:2 years
