Research Interests

In recent years, an ever-increasing number of inherited diseases, of previously unknown aetiology, are caused by defects in primary cilia and basal bodies. The aim of my research is to gain novel insights into the molecular mechanisms of early embryogenesis and neurodevelopment, by elucidating the role of primary ciliary and basal body function with key pathways of development.

Cilia Research Projects

The following are funded research projects related to cilia research.
