Research Interests

My interest is in the genetics and cell biology underlying ciliopathies, focussing on the genes and proteins mutated in conditions at the extreme ends of the ciliopathy spectrum; the multi-organ perinatal lethal Meckel-Gruber syndrome and; Lebers Congenital Amaurosis and Retinitis Pigmentosa, which have a phenotype restricted to the eye. I am particularly interested in the application of high-throughput approaches to studying gene functions, and the contribution of genetic variants to ciliopathies.
