More on Dr. Elliott Sherr and his collaborators at UCSF...

More on Elliot Sherr, leading the research on ACC at UCSF:

"Dr. Elliott Sherr and his collaborators at UCSF are studying the genetic causes of disorders of cognition and epilepsy, as well as the brain malformations associated with these disorders. Our focus is on polymicrogyria (PMG), Dandy-Walker malformation (DWM), and disorders of brain development that affect the corpus callosum (ACC/DCC). We are studying the clinical features of these disorders to better understand the problems faced by individuals with these disorders. The goal of our research is to use a better understanding of the underlying genetic causes as a foundation to develop better treatments for these groups of patients."
