Research Description

I am currently working to understand the mechanisms underlying two very different genes that both have associations with human craniofacial defects and are expressed in the neural crest cells of X.l. Both genes may also have roles in earlier developmental processes such as neural patterning, tissue specification and radial intercalation.
