As a pediatrician and a geneticist, my overall mission is to diagnose genetic conditions and enhance comprehensive care for individuals with rare disorders. At the clinic I am involved in diagnosing and management of individuals with wide range of genetic conditions including skeletal dysplasias such as osteogenesis imperfecta.  My research interest is focused on connective tissue disorders, characterizing the molecular basis of diseases in attempt to identify novel therapeutic approaches.
