Bio

The focus of the Hill-Yardin lab is on the gut-brain axis. We are interested in understanding how synaptic mutations impact endophenotypes in mouse models of autism. Specifically, we are investigating the impact of autism-associated synaptic gene mutations on gastrointestinal function and structure, including changes in how neurons might interact with microbes and the immune system in the gut.
