Postdoctoral researcher Cesar Canales joins the Nord Lab. Cesar has vast experience utilizing mouse models as a tool to understand human disease and training in analyzing brain phenotypes mostly gained from his PhD research in Williams Beuren Syndrome and his previous postdoctoral training in the Simo Lab at UC Davis, where he investigated the role of the CRL5 complex in hippocampal development and its implications in adult neurogenesis. In the Nord Lab, Cesar will be working on the characterization of the different genetic models of neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders that are currently under investigation.
