Categories Medicine & Medical Research Expertise I have a strong interest in uncovering the molecular mechanism(s) of early childhood neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) including epilepsy, intellectual disability and autism. I am currently driving research into the disease mechanism of girls clustering epilepsy, caused by mutations in the X-chromosome gene, PCDH19. Girls who have two X-chromosomes are affected, while boys with only one X-chromosome are not, opposite to what we would normally see with X-chromosome disorders. As a mother whose son had Autism Spectrum Disorder, these debilitating conditions are very close to my heart. I am committed to working towards translating research outcomes to benefit those children and families who are affected by epilepsy and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
