Research focus:

I am developmental geneticist and neuroscientist studying early craniofacial and brain development and the interactions between the two. We are using powerful transgenic tools to track lineages (and change gene expression inside them). As part of our work we encountered a remarkable spontaneous mutation (not present in parental strains) leading to a mother having both hydrocephalic and non-hydrocephalic siblings. This provides a new opportunity to track down disease loci of the illness.
