The lab of Dr. Timothy Yu at Boston Children’s Hospital


 Our Mission

We aim to uncover the genetic and neurobiological underpinnings of disorders of human neurodevelopment.

We take genetic, bioinformatic, and molecular approaches to understand how the human brain is miswired in these conditions, and translate this understanding into better patient care.
