Dr. Cox

Dr. Cox's research investigates molecular and developmental causes of common craniofacial malformations, such cleft lip/palate and craniosynostosis (the premature fusion of fibrous joints in the skull). These malformations can present as isolated anomalies or as part of an array of atypical developments often associated with developmental disabilities. He also has a long interest and involvement in the study of X-linked and mitochondrial disorders.

Cox and his team use molecular genetic, biochemical, cell biological, and embryological techniques to study the genetic and epigenetic factors that regulate the development of the craniofacial region. His work is ultimately aimed at developing better strategies to diagnose and manage treatment for atypical craniofacial development.
