Center for Neurobehavioral Genetics

Dan Geschwind, MD, PhD (Co-Director)

Dr. Dan Geschwind is the Gordon and Virginia MacDonald Distinguished Professor of Human Genetics, Neurology and Psychiatry and Senior Associate Dean and Associate Vice Chancellor of Precision Health at UCLA where he leads the Institute of Precision Health and Center for Autism Research and Treatment. The laboratory merges population genetics, functional genomics, stem cells based organoid and mouse models, to connect genetic risk to discover underlying neurobiological mechanisms of disease and fuel development of new treatments. Our disease focus includes autism and related neurodevelopment disorders and neurodegenerative dementias, but our methods and approaches are broadly applicable and have been applied to many brain disorders.
