The Geschwind Lab The Geschwind laboratory is dedicated to improve treatment and understanding of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative conditions, focusing on autism spectrum disorders, dementia, neural repair, and inherited ataxia. Our work leverages the fields of genetics and genomics, coupled with basic neurobiology, to obtain a systems level understanding of disease. We have pioneered the application of gene expression and network methods in neurologic and psychiatric disease, working in collaboration with dozens of other laboratories to connect molecular pathways to nervous system function. Our over arching goal is to develop new therapeutics for nervous system disorders for which disease altering therapies are not currently available. Plot of a module of genes co expressed during human cortical development. These genes share a pattern of mRNA expression across cortical regions and developmental time, and are involved in transcriptional and chromatin regulation. Genes that are highly connected (hubs) are predicted to be essential to the function of the module. Highlighted here are genes known to be disrupted by highly pathogenic de novo mutations in individuals with autism, suggesting that many of these mutations affect genes essential to gene regulation at a time when neuron fate is determined in developing cortex.
Chichester College wins TES FE Award The College returned triumphant on Friday after winning an award for ‘Best Teaching and Learning Initiative’ It was the chance for Hundreds of the UK’s most committed further education professionals to gather to celebrate the sector’s success stories in what many have described as the ‘Oscars of Further Education’. The awards, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane, are the pinnacle of
Cheap wholesale jerseys the year for the Further Education sector with thirteen awards covering all aspects of the industry. Proudly accepting the TES award For the College, the awards were the fruition of a fantastic year that has seen it awarded Outstanding by Ofsted in all four inspection areas; gain a Worldskills Gold medal for Furniture Making all whilst celebrating its 50th anniversary. In all, the College was shortlisted in four categories: Teacher of the Year, Contribution to the Local Economy, Best Teaching and
