Research Summary

The focus of our research is the molecular elucidation of human disease especially growth and neuronal disorders. To uncover the causes of these disorders, our work employs different cell culture and animal models and differentiated embryonic stem cells. We would like to understand how mutations correlate with disease, how genes are regulated and how they contribute to differentiation and development.
