Diagnostics for Intellectual Disability​
 
Brief Description: 
Our scientists have discovered a nonsense mutation in the TRAPPC9 gene and a missense mutation in the NSUN2 gene that allows for the direct diagnosis of intellectual disability with a predictive value of nearly 100%. These markers would strengthen the genetic testing menu of a diagnostic company, and may support therapeutic interventions for intellectual disability. Click here to read more.

 
Brief Description:
 Our researches have developed a proprietary microarray-based technology for DNA methylation profiling in large genomes. They have identified a number of epigenetic markers associated with major psychosis; namely, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Epigenetic disease markers will enable us to identify individuals at risk of these diseases and enroll them in prevention programs. They will also create new opportunities for the rational design of the next generation of drugs for psychiatric disease. Click here to read more.
