Pediatric Genetics Research Programs


Research Programs

Genetic Basis of Developmental Disabilities
Program director: G. Shashidhar Pai, MD
Research goals: To identify genetic predispositions and the pathophysiology of small, well-defined group of related disorders, including autism spectrum disorders and related genetic syndromes.

Drug Disposition and Pharmacogenetics
Program director: C. Lindsay DeVane, PharmD
Research goals: To better understand the roles of drug disposition and pharmacogenetics in the response to drugs in order to improve outcomes of drug treatment. By co-locating this program with molecular genetics, developmental neuroscience, pediatric neuropsychiatry, and cancer programs, there are opportunities for synergies in research that would examine drug effects in brain disorders and in cancer.
