“Looking back on 40 years of mammalian genetics discoveries” by Dr. Uta Francke, Professor of Genetics and of Pediatrics, Emerita, Stanford University

Uta Francke, M.D.
Professor of Genetics and of Pediatrics, Emerita, Stanford University

Uta Francke is professor of Genetics and Pediatrics Emerita at Stanford University. Her research has ranged from human and mouse chromosome identification and gene mapping to the discovery of genes involved in heritable disorders, studies of their functions and of disease-causing mechanisms. Applying genomic technologies to mammalian genetics research, her laboratory developed mouse models for human microdeletion syndromes.
