I am a Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia-based faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at UPenn. The focus of my laboratory concerns the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern the development of the mammalian forebrain. We use mouse genetics, forebrain slice and dissociated culture techniques, as well as mouse and human pluripotent stem cells in cell culture and transplantation experiments to study the fate determination of interneurons of the cerebral cortex.
Jonathan A. Weiss, Ph.D. (York University), is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology, and a clinical psychologist.

His research focuses on the prevention and treatment of mental health problems in people with autism spectrum disorders and/or intellectual disabilities across the lifespan.
Dr. Rivera uses classic behavioral as well as neuroimaging (fMRI) techniques to investigate such things as the development of dorsal vs. ventral visual processing, object representation, numerical cognition and affective processing.
John Foxe, PhD, is a translational researcher with a history of research studies on the basic neurophysiology of schizophrenia and autism.
Dr. Gene Yeo is an expert in the areas of RNA, computational biology, genomics and neurological diseases. Yeo obtained a bachelor of science in chemical engineering and a bachelor of arts in economics from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (1998) and a master’s degree in business administration from the Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego (2008).
