Our research is forging new paths of discovery in finding the multiple genetic causes of complex developmental disorders like congenital cardiac disease and schizophrenia. Through our ground-breaking work we are helping to develop a better understanding of emerging genomic disorders. These involve changes in the structure of the human genome that cause changes in development and later in life. The foremost amongst those is 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome. We are world leaders in the study of adults with this complex multisystem condition. Using the latest genetic techniques and assessments, this research will lead to more specific diagnoses and delineation of disease pathways. Developing new management and preventive strategies to improve these complex lifelong conditions is fast becoming an achievable goal.
