Dennis lab awarded IDDRC Pilot grant

Thank you to the UC Davis MIND Institute for funding our pilot experiments modeling autism in zebrafish! We are well under way generating mutant fish in the lab thanks to efforts by talented undergrads Kyle and Eva and look forward to developing phenotypic screens in the coming months.

Congratulations to Paulina, new ARTP fellow

Cheers to Paulina, who was recently awarded a fellowship through the Autism Research Training Program (ARTP) at the MIND Institute! Paulina will use the fellowship to learn more about the clinical and neurological aspects of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). She will also pursue a research project focused on the functional outcomes of structural variation at genomic hotspots across primates and in patients with neurological disease.

With Megan recently joining the faculty of the ARTP, we expect many exciting future interactions with trainees and investigators at the MIND Institute as we continue to investigate the underlying components of ASDs.
