New research published in Molecular Brain has reported a characterization of the pathogenic mechanism of human lissencephaly using induced pluripotent stem… Read more »
Our lab was the first in the world to successfully generate transgenic marmosets with germline transmission. Our gene modification techniques can be used in a variety of non-human primates. Through our study of genetically modified marmosets (including disease models), we aim to understand the higher cognitive functions that are unique to primates. Ultimately, we hope to apply our work in treating human neurologic diseases.
