Dr. Christopher Quinn recently received an R01 grant for $1.7M from the National Institute of Mental Health, for “Investigation of how axon development is disrupted by the autism-causing Timothy syndrome mutation.”
Autism is a cognitive and behavioral disorder that is caused almost entirely by genetic alterations. This project will investigate how these genetic alterations disrupt the cellular and molecular mechanisms that govern brain connectivity and behavior.
