Research Investigator Profile
Center for Human Genetic Research
Fawn Leigh, MD
The focus of Dr. Leigh's current research is directed at searching for modifiers of tumor development whose identification may provide potential therapeutic targets, as well as clues to better understanding the underlying mechanisms in tumor development. In Neurofibromatosis, type 1 (NF1), clinical variability is common. Prior studies of families affected by NF1 have implicated trait-specific modifier genes as important determinants of the clinical variability in NF1.
