Dr. Crino is an internationally recognized physician-scientist specializing in developmental brain disorders. His laboratory has researched mechanisms of altered brain development associated with autism, intellectual disability and epilepsy, defining developmental disorders associated with intractable epilepsy including autism, hemimegalencephaly, focal cortical dysplasia and tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), which he has studied extensively.

He has collaborated on identifying several new genes associated with neurodevelopmental disorders, pioneered single-cell mRNA and DNA sequencing analysis in resected human tissues and has used mouse models to plumb the effects of mTOR regulatory genes on cell development in vitro models using immunocytochemistry, Western assay, mRNA expression analysis, gene transfection and in vitro cell migration assays.
