The role of CASK in neuronal morphogenesis and brain size in Drosophila: a genetic model of human intellectual disability with microcephaly

Research Summary

Understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in neurodegenerative diseases, utilizing multiple different model systems (mice, flies, and human patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells) and ultimately translating these findings into the development of therapeutics.
