I am a second year PhD student whose project aims to understand how mutations in eEF1A2 cause epilepsy, intellectual disability and autism. I have been investigating whether eEF1A2 interacts with other proteins affected in epilepsy and modelling the learning and memory impairments and autistic features seen in patients. I will soon be working to establish the effects of the mutations on cells which are representative of those found in the brain.
