My research program at BU aims to develop pioneering work towards understanding shared cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurodevelopment and vasculogenesis in the context of rare diseases with an epigenetic basis. My specific interest lies in studying non-canonical mechanisms like the histone methyltransferase KMT2D roles regulating neuronal differentiation and blood vessel patterning. To reach this goal, I combine my expertise in rare disease modeling in zebrafish together with cardiovascular and neurobiology techniques and human iPSC-derived brain organoids.

I strongly believe that a patient-forward focus to our projects will help us to get better understanding of disease mechanisms through basic science research. To this end, in my lab we are active in the collaborative community among field experts and rare disease patient-advocacy groups who drive our research program to identify therapeutic targets in patient-specific iPS cells.
