We are located in the Department of Medical Genetics, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal. Our research delves into the cellular mechanisms of primary cilia mediated regulation of cell growth and differentiation largely focusing on bone and cartilage formation and repair. We also engage in collaborative human genetics research focused on studying the molecular pathogenesis of rare genetic skeletal and neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as the population biology of human diseases.
