He is a member of the group that discovered Jagged1 and NOTCH2 as the primary causes of Alagille syndrome.


Sara E. Pinney, MD, MS

Sara E. Pinney

Dr. Pinney investigates the molecular mechanisms that link an adverse intrauterine milieu to the development of diabetes and obesity later in life. Specifically, she is researching how intrauterine growth restriction, gestational diabetes and in utero exposure to environmental toxicants contribute to the development of diabetes and obesity in offspring.


Mortimer Poncz, MD

Mortimer Poncz

Dr. Poncz investigates the megakaryocyte-platelet-thrombus axis. The process by which hematopoietic stem cells differentiate into megakaryocytes are the central foci of his laboratory work. Many of his studies focus on the biology and pathobiology of the platelet-specific proteins, chemokines Platelet Factor 4 (PF4)/Platelet Basic Protein (PBP) and the integrin alphaIIb/beta3 receptor.
