Focus is on understanding embryonic origins of adult heart disease, with a specific interest in heart valves. Lab uses in vitro and in vivo tools in combination with molecular biology, bioengineering and imaging skills to examine the mechanisms of how heart valves form in the developing embryo, and how alterations in embryogenesis give rise to dysfunctional heart valves after birth.
