Hume Stroud is an assistant professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He received his doctoral training in the laboratory of Steve Jacobsen at the University of California, Los Angeles. His work focused on the regulation of DNA replication and transposon silencing in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. For his postdoctoral training, Stroud went on to join the laboratory of Michael Greenberg at Harvard Medical School, where he utilized genomic approaches to understand the regulation and function of DNA methylation in neurons in the developing brain.
Stroud’s lab seeks to investigate the genomic and epigenomic regulation of nervous system development, regeneration and health. They are particularly interested in understanding how disruption of these mechanisms lead to neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism.
