Within the Neurogenetics Program, my lab has three major research interests: the first two relate to the molecular genetics and biology of hemorrhagic stroke, focusing on brain aneurysms and cavernous malformations, and the third centers on gene discovery in developmental structural brain disorders (cerebral malformations).
The overall approach of my lab is to start with a focus on gene discovery through modern, cutting edge molecular genetics and moving on to molecular biology and functional analysis of disease in order to design diagnostics and non-invasive novel treatments.
Yale researchers have taken the first critical steps in unraveling the mysteries of brain aneurysms, the often fatal rupturing of blood vessels that afflicts 500,000 people worldwide each year and nearly killed Vice President-elect Joseph Biden two decades ago. more…
