The Luquetti Lab collaborates with researchers and institutions in the U.S. and South America. We work closely with, Hospital Edgardo Rebagliati (Lima, Peru) and with investigators with the Latin American Collaborative Study of Congenital Malformations (ECLAMC). Our goal is to improve our understanding of microtia and other craniofacial malformations. The lab's collaborators include:
