My laboratory focuses on two major areas: dissecting the genetic mechanisms of mammalian development, with a focus on craniofacial development and dysmorphology, and developing new genetic tools and resources for the scientific community. In this latter area, we use CRISPR/Cas9 to model novel mutations hypothesized to cause a variety developmental disorders including congenital heart disease and craniofacial malformations.
