IRCN will hold two-day joint workshop with our collaboration partner, NCCR synapsy.
Copy number variations in chromosome 22q underlie several forms of cognitive impairment, including schizophrenia (22q11) and autism spectrum disorder (22q13). Distinct mutations of even the same Shank3 gene can contribute to different disorders of psychosis and autism. This workshop will feature overlapping expertise in the dissection and understanding of 22q syndromes across Centers. By sharing insights, IRCN will seek to identify mutual areas of investigation for future collaboration across cultures and animal models.

Date: July 6-7, 2019

Venue: IRCN Seminar Room@13F, Faculty of Medicine Experimental Research Building, School of Medicine, Hongo Campus
