Identifying ASD-associated Genetic Risk in the Chromatin Landscape of the Developing Cortex

2019 Predoctoral Fellowships

University of California, San Francisco
San Francisco, California
United States


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.
