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.
Nawei Sun has joined the Willsey Lab as a postdoctoral fellow. She recently completed her PhD in Genetics at Rutger’s University in the lab of Jay Tischfield. Nawei has a wealth of experience in tissue culture and iPSCs, and will leverage this expertise to interrogate Tourette disorder risk genes that our lab has identified via whole exome […]
Hear Dr. Willsey talk about how ASD genetics research is helping us understand the biology behind this complex spectrum of disorders, with the ultimate goal of translating this knowledge into innovative treatments.
