    Collapse Overview
    My research focuses on understanding the genetic and environmental basis of individual differences in typical social behavior and in risk for neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). We model genetic diversity using large families of recombinant inbred mouse strains in which genetic variation is extensive, fixed, and well-characterized. Current studies focus on 1) identifying genes that underlie strain differences in sociability and cognition using quantitative trait locus mapping and advanced gene validation strategies, 2) examining the interaction between genetic background and common genetic risk variants for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to identify the biological mechanisms underlying disorder risk/resilience, and 3) identifying the role of strain genetics in moderating risk/resilience to adverse outcomes associated with early-life stress. The goal of these studies is to understand the biology of heritable variation in sociability and cognition and to advance precision medicine approaches for the treatment of NDDs and early-adversity.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
