  • Research Interests

    Neurogenetics Research Program

    Identification of genes and understanding of molecular mechanisms leading to intellectual disabilities, autisms and some epilepsies represents a challenge of significant medical importance.

    Our research seeks to further our understanding of human brain function through the identification of genes and characterisation of their naturally occurring mutations implicated in various disorders of the brain intellectual disability and epilepsy in particular. With a broad range of state-of-the-art human genetics and genomics skills, the Neurogenetics team has discovered or contributed to the discovery of more than 50 different genes.

    Led by Professor Jozef Gecz, the Neurogenetics Research Program is complemented by a large number of national and international clinical and basic science collaborators, and is currently funded by NHMRC Program and Project Grants and Senior Research Fellowships, a MS McLeod Fellowship, grants from the WCH Foundation and the Channel 7 Children's Research Foundation and philanthropic funds.


    Current Research

    The four key areas of focus are:
    • Genomics and Bioinformatics (led by Dr M Corbett),
    • Molecular mechanisms of Intellectual disability (led by Dr C Shoubridge),
    • Molecular neuroscience (led by Dr L Jolly),
    • Animal models (led by Drs M Corbett and C Shoubridge).


    Main Projects

    • Neurobiology of epilepsy (Supported by NHMRC Program grant 628952, 2011-2015.).
    • Understanding the role of UPF3B and NMD in the pathology of intellectual disability (Supported by NHMRC Project grant 1063808, 2014-2016)
    • Identification and functional characterisation of a novel gene implicated in novel neurodegenerative disorder with severe axonal peripheral neuropathy, neurogenic muscular atrophy and optic atrophy (Supported by philanthropic funds.).
    • A mouse model for Borjeson-Forssman-Lehmann syndrome (Supported by Channel 7 Research and the WCH foundation - M. Corbett.).
    • Investigating the Cell and Molecular Neurobiology of USP9X (Supported by WCH Foundation - L. Jolly.).


  • Research Funding

    Our work is funded by:

    • NHMRC Project Grants
    • NHMRC Program Grants
    • NHMRC Fellowship
    • Medvet Funding
    • Australian Cancer Research Funding
