Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have always been fascinated by the process of genetic penetrance, how two people can carry the same mutation but only one of them may be affected.
My main project focuses on understanding the role of TBX4 in the development of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). Mutations in this gene are related to very different diseases. In my research, I mix cellular models, gene editing, and high throughput assays to find the determinants of penetrance in the development of PAH under these conditions.
