Functional assessment of missense variants of SYNGAP1

Here are the introductory comments: 

Our talk for today is “Functional Assessment of Missense Variants of SYNGAP1.”

I have the pleasure to introduce today’s speaker professor Kurt Haas.

He is a professor of cellular and physiological sciences at the faculty of medicine at the University of British Columbia.

The primary goal of Dr. Haas’s research is to understand how brain circuits form during early development and how mutations and errors give rise to dysfunctional circuits that underlie common neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and Epilepsy. 

The distinctive feature of his research approach is the development of imaging tools that combine electrophysiology, genetics and microscope design to see brain neural network activity and growth.
