Research in the Amendt laboratory focuses in three key areas.

  1. Understanding the steps in the development of the craniofacial structures. We use a combination of Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genetic, Molecular Biology and mouse models to further our understanding of these key developmental steps.
  2. A commitment to teaching of undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral personnel.
  3. Coordination and development of the Craniofacial Anomalies Research center.
