Dr. Emily Casanova’s research background is in embryology, genetics, neuropathology, and bioinformatics, with particular focus on neurodevelopmental conditions and a strong emphasis on autism. Her current research foci/topics of interest include: 1) functional classification of high-risk autism genes; 2) the study of the neuropathology of autism and related conditions; 3) the characterization of genomic features common to autism risk genes and those genes’ roles in vertebrate evolution; 4) the cell stress response in autism spectrum conditions; and 5) etiological overlap between autism and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome/Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders. She is a research assistant professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Greenville.
