Brief description Intellectual disability affects about 2% of the Australian population. The identification of genes underlying a number of intellectual disability disorders has brought about great clinical advances. However, our knowledge of how these genes influence processes of brain development and are important for intelligence is very limited. We propose to study the function of PHF6, the gene mutated in the Börjeson-Forssman-Lehmann intellectual disability syndrome, during brain development.
