    The Campbell lab studies the extrinsic pathways and intrinsic instructions that control neuronal fate. We study this process in cortical interneurons because they are exceptionally diverse, critically important for brain function, and implicated in the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental diseases such as autism. Using stem cell and mouse models we aim to study the intersection of different regulatory networks that underlie cellular specification, with a special interest in their link to human disease.
