Welcome to the Khokha Lab!
The Khokha lab is interested in the genes and developmental mechanisms that lead to birth defects (congenital malformations). Our approach is novel gene discovery in congenital malformation patients followed by developmental mechanism discovery in Xenopus.
Our Research Areas
Hwang WY, Kostiuk V, González DP, Lusk CP, Khokha MK. Kap-β2/Transportin mediates β-catenin nuclear transport in Wnt signaling. Elife. 2022 Oct 27;11:e70495. doi: 10.7554/eLife.70495. PMID: 36300792; PMCID: PMC9665845.
Researchers hope to create a map of our DNA, which is what tells the human body how to grow, develop, and function. This map may help explain the cause of some medical conditions. Some of these discoveries we hope will guide us towards giving our children the best medical care possible.
