Research Interests

Niambi joined the Shore lab in the summer of 2015. She has a broad interest in the genetics and molecular changes involved in human genetic disorders. She is currently working on two main projects: an investigation of the genome of FOP patients for variability in disorder presentation; and an investigation of the cellular mechanism of the response to POH-like loss of GNAS expression.
