Ophir Klein, MD, PhD
Dr. Klein’s research is centered on understanding how development normally occurs, in the hope of one day treating diseases that result from abnormalities in these processes. He focuses largely on craniofacial and dental development, as malformations in these organs are among the most common congenital abnormalities and have profound impacts on the lives of patients and their families. He also studies normal and perturbed development of the skeleton, taste papillae, external genitalia, gastrointestinal tract, and other organs; and investigates how embryonic and adult stem cells self-renew and differentiate.
