Translational genomics of neurodevelopmental disorders

Welcome to our lab site! 

We are a highly motivated and interdisciplinary research team that focuses on dissecting molecular networks and mechanisms underlying human brain function and disease, using the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster as a model. Here you can read more about what we do.

We are based in the Department of Human Genetics at Radboudumc in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. In addition, we are embedded in the multidisciplinary Donders institute of Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour, which allows us to operate across disciplines.
