研究方向
1.    神经精神疾病的分子遗传学,主要研究调控遗传变异对孤独症,精神分裂和阿尔兹海默症的影响
2.    基因表达的遗传学机制
3.    神经细胞的胞内信号传导机制
4.    神经细胞基因的诱导表达

重要学术贡献
近年来主要致力于研究调控遗传变异对人脑基因mRNA表达的影响以及对精神分裂症,孤独症,阿尔兹海默症等复杂神经精神疾病的影响。1)通过对疾病侯选基因等位基因表达差异的研究,以及系统性的研究候选基因组合和通路表达水平改变,寻找更具生物学意义和高效可行的分子生物学标记,从而揭示其与复杂神经精神疾病相关联的分子遗传学机制。2)建立通过决定系数R2来分析顺式调控原件对神经精神疾病侯选基因表达量影响的数学模型。
