Research Interest: The liver is a vital organ with a wide range of functions, including detoxification of various metabolites, protein synthesis, synthesis of bile acids, and, broadly, regulation of metabolism. Our laboratory's goal is to understand how these processes are regulated within the liver.

Areas of Interest: Genetics of Birth Defects: neuroendocrine, auditory, and skeletal development. We use two main approaches in our birth defects research - sequencing patient DNA to identify novel disease genes and use of cell culture and animal models, especially the mouse, to understand the mechanism and pathophysiology of disease.
