Title of the project: Illuminating the Role of Cul3 in Autism Spectrum Disorder Pathogenesis 

Research topic of the student: Studying novel disease models for the neurodevelopmental disorders intellectual disability (ID) and the autism spectrum disorders (ASD), by employing mouse lines haploinsufficent for the high risk genes Cul3 andSetd5. The focus of my work is thereby to identify phenotypes relevant to the human condition and to understand whether these phenotypes are in principle reversible. Furthermore, I am investigating the underlying pathogenic mechanisms of the disorders, trying to identify novel drug targets.
