Maja Bucan, Ph.D
Associate Professor of Genetics in Psychiatry
Maja Bucan’s research concerns the characterization of large chromosomal regions, homologous in mouse and humans, using a combination of genetic and physical mapping approaches. The ultimate goal of these studies is the identification of mouse mutations that are potential models for human genetic diseases. Her research falls into two main lines. One concerns the generation of functional chromosomal maps of the mouse genome while the goal of the second project is the localization and identification of genes underlying behavior in mammals.
