Research Interests

My laboratory research is focused on three main topics. We are investigating the cis and trans factors that are important for the control of globin gene expression. Second, we are devising new approaches for molecular diagnosis of genetic diseases. Our recent work is to recover fetal cells from maternal blood in order to diagnose single gene disorders. Finally, we are studying methods of directing genes into target cells for tissue-specific gene transfer with the potential of in vivo administration of therapeutic genes.
