Dr. Emanuel investigates diseases caused by abnormalities of human chromosome 22. These include the most common microdeletion syndrome, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, and the most common recurrent constitutional translocation in humans, the t(11;22). Her efforts include discerning the mechanisms involved in generating the deletion and translocation as well as looking for modifiers of the phenotype in individuals with the deletion syndrome.
