I use cutting-edge genomics technologies to identify rare genetic variation that contributes to common pediatric disorders. My main areas of interest include autism, congenital heart defects in Down syndrome, early-onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), and juvenile arthritis. Current projects include:
All of Us Research Program: I am the Emory PI for this NIH funded program that is enrolling participants for a 1 million person cohort to be followed for 10 years. Join today!
Identifying Autism Susceptibility Genes: I am a member of the Autism Sequencing Consortium (ASC) and co-lead the membership committee for the ASC.
Early-onset forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): With collaborators Subra Kugathasan, David Cutler, Mike Epstein.
