Lab Mission

Our mission is to understand how genetic variation modifies the likelihood of developing neuropsychiatric disease.

Our research focuses on how neuropsychiatric risk genes contribute to brain development and function in order to understand how disorders occur and to identify novel treatment targets.

Lab Values

  • Conduct science of the highest integrity
  • Advocate for diversity and inclusivity in science, mental health, and beyond
  • Create a safe and supportive research environment
  • Connect our research to affected communities
