Research Statement:

I’m focused on discovering and understanding the function of genes and abnormalities in genes (“mutations”) that cause disease in children and adults. My pathology lab studies tissue changes associated with mutations. My molecular biology lab focuses on R&D in design and production of mutant mouse models, particularly Cas9 RNA-guided nucleases, germ cell cryopreservation, and in vitro fertilization.
