My research involves developping innovative and systematic computational approaches to analyze genomics and proteomics data of increasing quantity and quality. My goal is to characterize the mechanisms by which genomes, proteomes and interactomes evolve and how their perturbation can lead to different cellular states. In Prof. Bourgeron’s lab, I study the human protein interaction network to characterize complex genotype-phenotype relationships in the context of autism spectrum disorders.

Around 1% of children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), yet there are currently no drugs designed specifically to treat their main symptoms. Working to change this is the IMI-funded EU-AIMS project. The […]
Background on the genetics of ASD
Autism spectrum disorders are a heterogeneous group of pervasive neurodevelopmental disorders affecting approximately 1% of the population. The diagnosis of ASD is based on impairments in reciprocal social communication and stereotyped behaviors. Behind the […]

Phelan McDermid Syndrome: from mechanisms to treatments
Phelan-McDermid syndrome (PMS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder with non-specific clinical features. The main symptoms are hypotonia, intellectual disability (ID), absent or delayed speech together with minor dysmorphic features. More than half of the patients […]
The serotonin-NAS-melatonin pathway and susceptibility to ASD
Sleep difficulties are a major concern for families with ASD, but are often considered as an epiphenomenon, and therefore do not catch the attention of the medical and scientific community. In 2008, we reported […]
