Aditi Deshpande, PhD
What I Do
Aditi did her PhD in Neuroscience from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in Munich, Germany.
She joined the Weiss lab as a postdoctoral fellow in March 2013 to work on developing a cell-based model for studying autism and associated neurodevelopmental disorders. Her project involves studying the 16p11.2 deletion and duplication phenotypes in patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), in order to understand the neurodevelopmental pathways affected and to develop treatment strategies.
Apart from work, Aditi enjoys photography, hiking, traveling and gardening.
