    T32DE007306-15     (Den Besten, Pamela)Aug 1, 1996 - May 31, 2012
    Comprehensive Oral Health Training Program
    Role Description: This was an institutional training grant for pre-doctoral trainees in the Oral and Craniofacial Sciences graduate program at UCSF.
    Role: Trainee

    R01DE021708     (MARCUCIO, RALPH S)Apr 27, 2011 - Mar 31, 2016
    Developmental mechanisms underlying genotype-phenotype correlations
    Role Description: The goals of this project were to study the correlation between genotype and phenotype using three-dimensional microCT imaging and geometric morphometrics.
    Role: Trainee

    F31DE021964     (SMITH, FRANCIS JOEL)Jul 1, 2011 - Jun 30, 2012
    Effects of Hypoxia on Craniofacial Morphology and Molecular Signaling
    Role Description: The major goals of this project were to examine the effects of early embryonic hypoxia on craniofacial morphology in chick embryos, as well as cell proliferation and apoptosis and cellular metabolic stress in response to hypoxia.
    Role: Principal Investigator

    U01DE024429     (WILLIAMS, TREVOR J)Jul 3, 2014 - Apr 30, 2019
    RNA dynamics in the developing mouse face
    Role Description: The major goals of this project are to study the steady-state level of mRNA, miRNA, and other small RNA species in the separate tissue layers of the ectoderm and mesenchyme during critical periods of wild-type mouse face development.
    Role: Trainee under Diversity Supplement
