adi.jpgThe development of an embryo is an amazing process, in which a single cell develops into a complex, functional organism. Our lab is interested in understanding which genes contribute to normal development of eyes and forebrain, two highly complex organs that enable us to perceive and process information from our environment.
Understanding the genetic basis of normal and abnormal forebrain and eye development is necessary for providing genetic counseling, for preventing debilitating congenital malformations and can contribute to developing treatment strategies.
