John L. R. Rubenstein

Professor of Psychiatry and Child Psychiatry
Director, Rubenstein Lab

Rubenstein’s research focuses on the regulatory genes that orchestrate development of the forebrain. His lab has demonstrated the role of specific genes in regulating neuronal specification, differentiation, migration and axon growth during embryonic development and on through adult life. His work may help to explain some of the mechanisms underlying human neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.
