Andrew Tidball, PhD
Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience
Research Assistant Professor
The Tidball lab studies the mechanisms of human developmental brain malformations,
including neural tube defects and focal cortical dysplasia. We use single rosette brain organoids,
pluripotent stem cells, and CRISPR technology to discover or confirm novel genes that lead
these conditions. We also model the effects of neuroteratogens, compounds that disrupt
development of the CNS when ingested during pregnancy.
