Using induced pluripotent stem cells to identify cellular phenotypes of autism  

This approach has the potential to revolutionize our study of autism and other psychiatric disorders. It will allow us to link the phenotype and genotype of patients with the cell biological defects that give rise to disease. In addition, it will allow us to develop cell-based assays to both investigate the etiology of the disease and to find new treatments for these untreatable disorders.
