The Yadav laboratory is interested in investigating kinase signaling pathways that are important for neuronal development as well as in understanding how their dysfunction leads to neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Our lab utilizes a combination of powerful approaches in induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology, chemical-genetics, high-resolution live cell imaging and quantitative proteomics to investigate the role of kinases and their downstream targets in development and neurodevelopmental disease.
