Our laboratory studies the development of the human embryo.
To understand how embryogenesis proceeds,we investigate
genetic disorders that cause birth defects.

Once we have uncovered the genetic lesion responsible for a given
disease, we make use of patient's cells and animal models to
examine the disease's aetiology, in hopes of developing effective

One of our objectives is to understand how human identical twins
are formed. Known as monozygotic (MZ), identical twins arise
when two babies develop from one embryo. Truly monoclonal

This extraordinary mode of development is obligate in nine-banded
armadillos which have MZ quadruplets each and every time they breed.
