“A Reverse Translational Approach to Studying Neurodevelopmental Disorder Pathophysiology: From Clinical Phenotype to Mutation to Model to Mechanism“
Hosted by the Division of Pediatric and Developmental Neurology
Sheng Chih (Peter) Jin, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Genetics and Pediatrics at the Washington University School of Medicine. He is interested in understanding how genetic variation affects disease biology and using genetic and genomic analyses to infer the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental diseases.
Kristen Kroll, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Developmental Biology. Her research includes the modeling of neurodevelopmental disorders in human pluripotent stem cell-derived neurons and organoids and her lab operates the Cellular Models Program of WUSM’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center. She also serves on PreMIER’s expertise panel for human variant modeling.
Together, Dr. Jin and Dr. Kroll will outline a reverse translational approach to studying neurodevelopmental disorder pathophysiology: from clinical phenotype to mutation to model to mechanism.
