The work of a multi-institution research team led in part by UCSF Department of Psychiatry scientists Jeremy Willsey, Stephan Sanders, and Matthew State has been recognized by Neuron with inclusion on the journal’s “Best of 2016-2017” list. Their paper, “De Novo Coding Variants Are Strongly Associated With Tourette Disorder,” was cited as one of the five most accessed research […]
Our recent publication on de novo variants and Tourette disorder has been named one of the top five articles in Neuron for 2016-17. Excited to be recognized by this great journal! http://info.cell.com/best-of-neuron-2016-2017
Jeremy Willsey, PhD, will map the core molecular networks underlying autism. This will provide critical insights into pathology and treatment to generate a new paradigm for investigating neuropsychiatric disorders that bridges the current gap between genetics and functional biology. http://weill.ucsf.edu/news/ucsf-weill-institute-neurosciences-announces-trailblazer-awards
Our new paper, establishing the contribution of de novo sequence mutations to Tourette disorder risk came out in Neuron today. Thanks to everyone involved for all of your hard work!
April 21st, 2017 – The Willsey Lab went to dinner at a nearby restaurant to celebrate the arrival of our new lab members, Nawei and Nia.
