We are interested in understanding the fundamental aspects of human embryonic development and birth defects. Our main research focus is genetic and functional aspects of human cardiac development and congenital heart disease. However, many developmental genes and molecular mechanisms are not functionally restricted to a single organ, thus we are also interested in investigating genetic and molecular mechanisms involved in other areas of human embryonic development, including development of the brain.
