Welcome to the MacDonald Lab!

We are broadly interested in understanding how the brain develops, and alterations that occur in neurodevelopmental or neuropsychiatric disorders. In particular, we focus on the neocortex and we are working to unravel how genetic factors and environmental factors intersect to orchestrate the development of this important brain region.
