Before we are born…

Many people – some scientists, others not – are interested in early human development because it is closely
related to the basic and important question: What are we and where have we come from?

Approximately 3-4% of newborn babies suffer from congenital anomalies (birth defects), which is a serious burden for patients and their families. Many congenital anomalies are assumed to be caused by the interaction of gene mutations and environmental factors, but the etiology and pathogenetic mechanisms remain to be clarified for most birth defects. In our laboratory, interdisciplinary research approaches are being undertaken to elucidate the causes and pathogenesis of birth defects and to attempt to identify some preventive measures.
