Research Summary

The level of sophistication of prenatal imaging and genetic diagnostics is growing rapidly, however cures for many congenital anomalies lag behind our diagnostic abilities. In developmental defects where babies are born with a disease phenotype, fetal therapy offers an opportunity to prevent or cure these disease. This is an opportunity that is lost after birth.

There are 3 broad aims of my basic science laboratory: 1) In Utero gene editing for the treatment of genetic diseases, 2) In Utero reversal of lung hypoplasia in diaphragmatic hernia 3) Minimally invasive In Utero therapy for spina bifida.
