Network activity and translational regulation in SHANK2 ASD neurons

2019 Predoctoral Fellowships

Hospital for Sick Children
Toronto, Ontario
Canada


This study will use induced pluripotent stem cells to investigate overconnection of neurons that carry a variation of the SHANK2 gene. By looking at these neural pathways, researchers may identify new targets for intervention that affect SHANK2 function.
