He also participates in a focused research project involving Joubert syndrome and related disorders of brain development. His recent work with this group includes two important discoveries, both of which have been reported in medical literature. The first is a description of the NPNH1 gene deletions in patients with a subset of Joubert syndrome. The second is with Dr. Dan Doherty and other specialists in imaging to develop and verify a prenatal diagnosis imaging protocol for Joubert syndrome.
