STUDIES IN AUTISM
Department: SOM - Physiology & Biophysics
|2056 Hewitt Hall|
Students will work within the Center for Autism Research and Treatment (CART) performing biophysical studies of cell signaling that include imaging, electrophysiology and biochemistry. Many of the cell lines used have single gene mutations that produce an autism phenotype, which these are being used to resolve the signaling pathways perturbed in typical Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Students will be trained in implementing study protocols, data collection techniques, data entry, data processing, and statistical analysis. Good opportunity for students interested in careers in medicine, clinical psychology, pharmacology and neuroscience.
