Research

Our research revolves around two broad themes:

  • Understanding growth and patterning of tissues in relation to function.
  • Investigating altered genetic control mechanisms, and identifying opportunities for therapeutic intervention in developmentally abnormal and malignant tissues.

And focuses on several research areas:

  • Developmental Biology of the kidney and urinary tract, and renal-coloboma syndrome.
  • Modeling of genetic disease and analysis of the underlying defect.
  • Cell survival during development.
  • Cell survival mechanisms in cancer and therapeutic targets for cancer treatment.
