Dr. Luo’s laboratory studies how gene regulatory mechanisms contribute to human diseases including neurodevelopmental disorders. They are developing and applying new genomic and genetic technologies to address long-standing questions in human diseases including the causal cell type(s) of diseases and the functions of non-coding genetic variants. They have developed high-throughput single-cell epigenomic and multi-omic technologies, and use these methods to study the gene regulatory diversity in the brain.
