Dr. Farah Zahir's Group
Dr. Zahir's Group researches the pathogenicity of Intellectual Disability in children. She has focused her studies on elucidating genotype-phenotype correlations for small genetic changes found in these children identified via array genomic hybridization. In addition she is also interested in how epigenetic regulatory imbalance affects neurodevelopment. Currently she is working on using next generation sequencing technologies to identify sequence mutations causative for ID.
