Scientist Solutions: International Life Science Community By Scientists For Scientists

Thanks to our sponsors who make this site possible
labrat' Bench [how it works]
My Bench Space is your space on Scientist Solutions, with both a private area where you can keep track of your account settings and favorite postings, and a public area where you can upload your picture, customize your profile, or start a blog

My Summary
Keeps a log of the topics you've started, the replies you've made, protocols or events you've posted, etc. Your summary will show up in your public profile.

My Blogs
You can create as many blogs as you like. They'll be viewable by anyone who looks at your profile, and they will also be indexed and listed in The Forums section of Scientist Solutions

My Lab Drawer (private)
As you browse through Scientist Solutions, you may see a topic, event, job or protocol that you'd like to store so that you can find it again easily. By clicking the "Save to My Bench Space" button next to any item on our site, you will put that item in your lab drawer for future reference.
You can also add fellow scientists to your lab drawer by clicking the "Save this scientist to My Bench Space" link next to that member's name in their posts or Bench Space profiles.

About My Research

Currently I work in Autism Research.  Autism is part of a broad spectrum of mental disorders that effect individuals from an early age and then persists throughout life.  It does not affect the length of life but affects social interactions and a person's ability to live an independent life.

The focus of our laboratory is on whole genome screens, and smaller focused screens to search for genes or regions that may be associated with Autism or it's broader phenotypes

Eventually the hope is that individuals can be diagnosed genetically at a much earlier age, leading to better support for the family and the child.
