Defining the genetic causes of Congenital Diaphragamatic Hernia using next generation sequencing, array CGH, and classical genetic linkage analysis, coupled with bioinformatic analyses and determining new therapeutics to alleviate the pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension responsible for the lethality of CDH

Isolation of ovarian cancer ascitesto determine mechanisms of action of Mullerian Inhibting Substance against stem cell population. Student projects will vary depending on stage of project, student's interest. Single cell sequencing has been used to uncover the role of MIS in inhibiting primordial follicles and preserving ovary reserve for contraception and protection during chemotherapy.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
