Research Activities

Keywords: human/medical genetics, molecular cytogenetics, cancer genetics, genomics

Description of Research Activities: My research is translational in nature with a goal of moving genetic research findings into the clinical laboratory setting.   My laboratory’s research activities include: (1) phenotype/genotype correlations in inherited diseases with chromosome abnormalities, and examining chromosome structure at the submicroscopic level; (2) identifying  genome copy number changes and their relationship to inherited diseases such as leukemia and acquired diseases such as leukemia and breast cancer; and, (3) developing  novel cytogenomic and genomic technology to improve disease diagnosis.
