Cell type-based genomics of developmental plasticity in cortical GABA interneurons  

This project will establish a cell type-based genetic strategy to study gene expression profiles in the mouse brain. This method will greatly enhance the sensitivity and explanatory power of genomic studies of mouse models of brain disorders such as Rett syndrome, schizophrenia, and autism. Project Status

Fiscal Year Funding $252,000.00
Project Number 1R21MH086030-01
Principal Investigator Huang, Z. Josh
Received ARRA Funding? No
Strategic Plan Question Question 2: How Can I Understand What Is Happening? (Biology)
Strategic Plan Objective New! Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 2SD. Launch three studies that target improved understanding of the underlying biological pathways of genetic conditions related to autism (e.g. Fragile X, Rett syndrome, tuberous sclerosis complex) and how these conditions inform risk assessment and individualized intervention by 2012. IACC Recommended Budget: $9,000,000 over 5 years.
