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.
