    My group has been interested in the regulation of matrix molecules that maintain connective tissue homeostasis. By investigating key enhancer sequences that regulate the developmental and adult expression of matrix proteins, we are able to use such sequences to target connective tissues in vivo, in a cell-specific manner. The ability to use pre-clinical models for gain and loss of functions of certain genes allow us to understand the mechanism(s) that underlie some of the connective tissue pathologies.
