Personal profile

Research interests

There are two major goals of the Molecular Neuroscience laboratory: 1.) To determine molecular mechanisms that are involved in the development and etiology of Autism Spectrum Disorders 2.) To understand the roles of epigenetics in molecular processes in the brain.

These goals are being pursued using multiple tools and techniques, including postmortem studies and the behavioral and molecular analysis of multiple autism mouse models.

In an exciting new project, we are establishing a national autism patient registry, whose goal is to improve Israeli autism research through a registry which will gather information about the epidemiology of autism in Israel and the establishment of a tissue bank for autism research.

Research interests

There are two main goals in Evan Elliott's research program. The first goal is to understand the biological and molecular basis of the development of Autism Spectrum Disorders. The laboratory performs research on biological specimens from individuals with autism, including post-mortem brains, blood, and stool samples. The laboratory also performs behavioral and molecular experimentation on autism mouse models to understand the functional role of patient-derived data. Two recent discoveries include epigenetic dysregulation in the brain of individuals with autism and preclinical evidence for a benefit of probiotics in autism. A secondary research goal is to understand the role of chromatin structure in brain processes and behavior. To this end, the laboratory uses transgenic mouse models to determine the role of epigenetic factors on behavior and neuronal activity.
