Huda Zoghbi

Huda Zoghbi explores the biology of genetic disorders such as Rett syndrome, and the genes essential for normal neurodevelopment.

On 30 September, Huda Zoghbi presented data from mouse studies that have helped identify the brain cells involved in Rett syndrome, an autism-like neurodevelopmental disorder. She also discussed how research in people can reveal the functions of MeCP2, the primary gene linked to the disorder.
