(Future Fellowship )
Brief description Genetic dissection of cardiac morphogenesis. The human heart is critical for survival and yet, despite its importance, we still lack a basic understanding of how it forms. This project aims to discover new genes involved in cardiac development so we can understand how to build a heart. Armed with this information, this research will assist in devising strategies for the repair of congenital and acquired heart disease.
