Michael Talkowski, PhD
Dr. Talkowski received a Ph.D. in human genetics and performed his postdoctoral training in neurodevelopmental genomics. The Talkowski laboratory is interested in understanding the consequence of genomic variation on human disease. We study the genetic etiology of disorders affecting prenatal, neonatal, and early childhood development, particularly autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders.
