Credentials: I will study cortical development in Down Syndrome using patient derived iPSC cortical organoids. Using single cell RNA sequencing and immunocytochemistry, I will identify molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for TS21 cortical phenotypes. I also plan to use fused organoids to study the role interneuron migration plays in decreased inhibitory neuron populations in the TS21 cortex.
