About the Speaker: The Haydar Laboratory is focused on forebrain development and function. A major focus is the study of how forebrain stem and progenitor cells generate the extraordinary level of neuronal diversity and circuit complexity during development. We are particularly interested in how brain development is modified in developmental disorders such as Down syndrome, epilepsy and autism, and are exploring how the hundreds of triplicated genes in Down syndrome lead to motor dysfunction and intellectual disability.
