Faculty Profile

Dr. Silvia Racedo, Ph.D.

Silvia Racedo, Ph.D.

Research Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics

Areas of Research: 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome, 22q11.2 Duplication Syndrome, cardiac development, congenital heart defects, genetic pathways, gene dosage.

Professional Interests

Our research focuses on the functions of genes within the 22q11.2 region such as Tbx1, Crkl and Dgcr8. We use mouse models to explore the potential genetic interaction between these genes, their tissue specificity and their downstream genetic pathways for cardiac development.
