Research interests

My research interests are to identifying genes for inherited peripheral neuropathies. These disorders affect the motor and sensory component of the peripheral nervous system and our research is driven to identify the gene mutations that cause the premature death of neurons (neurodegenration) in these disorders.

My research relies on the ascertainment of families for genetic linkage studies and using resources of the Human Genome Project to map chromosomal regions in the families and to find the gene mutation. Our laboratory stays abreast of the latest genome technologies and uses state-of-the-art mutation scanning methods and next generation sequencing strategies. The laboratory has expertise in genetic linkage analysis, molecular biology, next generation sequencing, bioinformatics and gene mapping strategies.
