Our lab's first 5-year R01 to study Scn2a deficiency related to autism was funded by NINDS! It is truly a group effect from all lab members, but special thanks go to Jingliang and Muriel!
Our first paper of the unique gene trap mouse model of Scn2a deficiency was published and featured in the cover of Genes, Brain and Behaviors, the official journal of the International Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society. Check out Muriel's paper!
