Research Summary

Elucidating the role of autism susceptibility gene, TAOK2, in neuronal growth and development.


Research Statement

TAOK2 is an autism risk gene that encodes a serine threonine kinase important for neuronal development. Using innovative strategies including genome editing, stem cell technology and proteomic approaches, we aim to elucidate the role of TAOK2 in early human neurodevelopment as well as determine how aberrant TAOK2 signaling contributes to neuropathology associated with autism and schizophrenia.
