AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS

In addition to basic research, the Araya lab at the Ste Justine Children's Hospital Research Centre is actively studying a model of Fragile X syndrome, a genetic condition that causes a range of developmental delays, learning disabilities and cognitive impairments and is the most common known cause of Autism.

 

In 2021 the Araya lab added a Shank3 mutation model of autism spectrum disorders

to its research projects.
