Human Genetics

The following GGR laboratories are interested in human genetics:

Christopher Brown Our research focuses on how genotypes produce phenotypes and how they vary and evolve
Maja Bucan
Genetic dissection of complex behaviors in mice; Functional genomics
Alice Chen-Plotkin I am interested in neurodegenerative diseases; my research approach uses genomic-scale screens to identify leads for downstream mechanistic follow-up in cell culture systems.
Gideon Dreyfuss RNA-binding proteins, nuclear transport of proteins and mRNAs, RNA processing, neurodegenerative disease, high throughput approaches to drug discovery.
Struan Grant Utilizing high-throughput genotyping and sequencing technologies, combined with statistical and bioinformatic approaches, my goals include unraveling genomic puzzles related to childhood obesity, pediatric bone strength determination, early onset diabetes and cancer.
Hakon Hakonarson Genetics of common and rare human diseases, using high-throughput sequencing and genotyping approaches
Brett Kaufman The role of mitochondrial chromatin organization in gene expression, resistance to damage, and genome transmission.
Nina Luning Prak
mobile DNA, rearrangement of immunoglobulin genes, regulation of L1 retrotransposition
Aimee Payne Genetic and functional characterization of human autoantibody repertoires; Targeted therapy for pemphigus ; Regulation of desmosome assembly and disassembly
J. Eric Russell
Control and function of human embryonic globin genes.
Eileen M. Shore
Genetic diseases of bone formation and development; Molecular and cell biology of bone formation and osteoblast differentiation; Transcriptional activation and regulation of bone morphogenetic protein and GNAS1 target genes.
Neal Sondheimer Mitochondrial genetics, mitochondrial heteroplasmy, mitochondrial transcription, mitochondrial disease.
Nancy Spinner Human Genetics, Notch signaling in human disease, Alagille syndrome, human disease gene identifcation by mapping deletions.
Sarah Tishkoff Human Genetics, complex disease, human evolution, infectious disease, malaria, evolutionary biology, natural selection, adaptation.
Benjamin Voight Using statistical genetics, population genetics, and computational biology toward understanding the biological underpinnings and evolutionary history of human phenotypes
