Genetic underpinnings of multiple neurological/neurosurgical disorders
My lab focuses on determining the genetic underpinnings of multiple neurological/neurosurgical disorders including Chiari I malformation, syringomyelia, pediatric hydrocephalus and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Additionally, we are focused on understanding the functional impact of all potential protein coding genetic variation in neurological disease genes to better predict which patients are at risk for developing these disorders before they present in the clinic using genetic information alone.
