Description

Description

Ji-Ann Lee, Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles, hopes to elucidate mechanisms that underlie neural circuit dysfunction in ASD and identify targets for treatment. Abnormalities in RNA processing in neurons contribute to ASD and Dr. Lee has identified the RNA-binding protein Rbfox1/A2BP1 as a candidate gene. He will explore the hypothesis that loss of Rbfox1 activity contributes to RNA dysregulation and development of the illness.
