Anne Slavotinek, MD, PhD
Professor of Clinical Pediatrics
Dr. Slavotinek specializes in research on multiple congenital anomaly syndromes and birth defects. Her research has focused on gene identification in patients with developmental eye defects, such as anophthalmia (absent eyes) and microphthalmia (small eyes). Her laboratory primarily uses array comparative genomic hybridization and next-generation sequencing to identify chromosomal regions of interest and/or candidate genes and Danio rerio as an animal model system to determine the effects of loss or gain of candidate gene function on eye development.
