Dr. Cox

Dr. Cox's research investigates molecular and developmental causes of common craniofacial malformations, such cleft lip/palate, midface hypoplasia and craniofacial microsomia, as well as how diet and other exposures contribute to an individual’s risk of presenting with a craniofacial disorder. Such malformations can present as isolated anomalies but also as part of an array of atypical developments often associated with developmental disabilities.

Cox and his team use molecular genetic, cell biological, and embryological techniques to study the genetic and epigenetic factors that regulate the development of the craniofacial region. His team also employs advanced 3D imaging and their own developed computer software to help determine the impact of genetic and non-genetic factors on the face. His work is ultimately aimed at developing better strategies to diagnose, manage and one day hopefully prevent atypical craniofacial development.
