Dr. Siegel Receives ASA Research Scholar Award
Dr. Dawn Siegel received a one-year, $60,000 award from the American Skin Association, for her project entitled, “Gene Discovery and Functional Analysis of Candidate Genes in PHACE Syndrome”. The long-term goal of this project is to use the knowledge of genetic underpinnings to drive strategies for prevention and provide critical targets for new therapeutic agents for PHACE syndrome and associated developmental anomalies.
Future goals are to continue to recruit PHACE patients for genotype-phenotype analysis; expand the Genetic Repository through the collection of additional tissue samples; and utilize the outstanding equipment and resources of the Human and Molecular Genetics Center at our institution.
The proposed research will contribute to improved understanding of the pathogenesis of the developmental anomalies seen in PHACE syndrome.
