Eirene’s broad interest is the regulation and function of Autism Spectrum Disorder genes during human cortical development. Specifically, she is studying chromatin regulation of ASD gene regulatory elements across development, and the function of chromatin modifying genes that are implicated in ASD. Previously, Eirene worked on the regulation of monoallelic olfactory receptor gene expression (Markenscoff-Papadimitriou et al, 2014).
