Anastassia Voronova

Summary:

One of the fundamental questions in neurobiology focuses on how neural stem cells build the brain during child development. Dr. Voronova's research program investigates how neural stem cells in the developing brain are regulated by: 1) autism-risk genes and 2) interactions with neighboring cells, such as neurons. Our goal is to use the lessons learned from normal brain development to design novel therapies for neurodevelopmental and neurological disorders in children and adults.
