Programs and Resources for Investigators
By understanding the response to injury and disease at the molecular, cellular, tissue and whole-organ levels, the CDBRM is developing innovative therapies that will ultimately help the body repair itself. Investigators at CDBRM make extensive use of state-of-the-art image analysis; the center is home to the SANTA core facility.
The Cox lab is studying why the normal progression of prenatal development veers off course to cause cleft lip and palate.
The Maves lab investigates how heart and muscle cells develop, with the goal of making discoveries that lead to new treatments of muscular dystrophy and heart disorders.
The Cunningham lab uses next-generation sequencing methods to identify the genetic causes of rare craniofacial conditions.
