New Publication on the Pierre Robin Complex

Typical palatogenesis in the murine embryo.

Richtsmeier Lab Member Dr. Susan Motch Perrine, alongside Dr. Joan Richtsmeier and collaborators, recently published a new paper titled Phenotypes, Developmental Basis, and Genetics of Pierre Robin Complex in the Journal of Developmental Biology. This review paper presents a comprehensive overview of Pierre Robin Complex phenotypes, as well as the underlying pathogenetic processes and genes associated with the syndrome. Finally, it reviews the available animal models  that could be used to better understand the genetic basis and phenotypic variation of Pierre Robin.
