OMRF scientist Dean Dawson received a four-year grant to study chromosomes and the cellular processes that organize them during cell division.
Abnormal numbers of chromosomes—known as aneuploidy—are a common cause of genetic disorders and birth defects.
Kids aren’t just small adults. Their needs are unique, and diseases can affect them differently. OMRF cell biologists are at work looking for the triggers that lead to problems in cell division that can cause birth defects like Down syndrome and even cancers. Immunologists are looking at a newly discovered cell that may trigger the […]
