"Unraveling the Genetic Basis of Human Facial Shape"
Many aspects of our facial appearance have a strong genetic basis, but very little is known about the specific genes that influence normal variation in facial features (e.g., the width of the nose or distance between the eyes). In this presentation, Dr. Seth Weinberg, Associate Professor in the Department of Oral Biology, will present new research findings in the area of human facial genetics. Using large repositories containing 3D human facial images and genomic data, a number of genetic association studies have now been conducted. Dr. Weinberg will highlight some key findings from these studies and discuss the potential application of this knowledge.
