Read about Dr. Mary Marazita of University of Pittsburgh's research on human genetics around craniofacial conditions and oral disease. The Kids First Data resource center puts the spotlight on Dr. Marazita's research this month.
Kid's First Data resource center reports that Dr. Marazita's research focuses on "on the human genetics of complex traits, primarily facial birth defects (including cleft lip, cleft palate, and other craniofacial anomalies), and oral disease (such as caries, malocclusion, and peridontal disease). She has more than 290 peer-reviewed publications, and substantial grant support, mostly from NIDCR. Her studies have led to collaborations with colleagues across the USA and in more than 15 other countries, representing all continents except Antarctica.
The Kids first Data Resource highlights investigators and researchers on birth defects and pediatric cancers. Their work is admirable. Find more information about Dr. Marazita's work at the Kids First program on our website, Facebook and Twitter today!
