Charlotte Blackmore studied her MSc in Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences at the IoPPN in 2015-2016. She became an honorary research assistant on the EU-AIMS Synaptic Gene project looking at the defect in the SHANK3 gene, which is thought to cause Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, and other synaptic CNVs linked to ASD. Following this, she gained a research assistant position on the GQAIMS study, investigating the anatomy, function and connectivity of brain systems that may contribute towards the development of ASD in individuals with 22q11.2DS.
