We use a variety of model organisms to investigate fundamental processes in animal development and disease. We are interested in the molecular mechanisms and genetics involved in human disease states including parasitic infections, congenital disorders and cancer. Our work has diverse applications ranging from the improvement of animal performance in farming through to the design of therapeutic drugs for medical purposes.
