Congenital heart defects are the most common form of human birth defects and cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality. The long-term goal of my laboratory is to determine molecular and cellular mechanisms that control cardiovascular development and disease. We take genome-wide approaches to identify novel factors that are critical for cardiac development and function and investigate their molecular functions using in vivo and in vitro strategies.
