Neurogenetics & Transcriptomics

Organizers: Carlos Cruchaga and Christina Gurnett Read More

About

As of fall 2016, the Neurogenetics Group is expanding to address Neurogenetics and Transcriptomics.  This is a diverse group of investigators whose independent research programs range from human genetics to genetic model organisms.  They share an interest in the genetic pathways underlying neurological disorders, techniques to identify those genetic pathways, and the use of genetics, genomics, and transcriptomics as tools to develop therapeutics.  Group meetings are open to the Washington University community, and those outside the Hope Center are welcome to present their work.

Organizer/Contact Information

For additional information about the Neurogenetics Group, please contact the faculty organizers, Carlos Cruchaga or Christina Gurnett or the administrative coordinator, Jan Konrad.
