My group works to discover and understand the functions of genes underlying the onset and progression of osteoarthritis and other bone and joint diseases. We use a combination of approaches including human genetics, bioinformatics, and model organisms (zebrafish and mouse) to elucidate the molecular and biological mechanisms that lead to changes in the synovial joint and contribute to the disease phenotype.
