About Our Lab

The research in our lab is focused on the analysis of homeobox (Hox) genes in the developing mammalian embryo primarily in the eye, palate and myelinating glia of the central nervous system. We are exploring the genetic regulation of myelination, remyelination in normal and aged models as well as looking at epigenetic factors in drug-induced teratogenicity and changes in gene expression. We are also studying the genetic regulation of palatal abnormalities such as cleft palate.

FUNDING: Research is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health (CIHR), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada
