B.Sc.: Fort Hayes State University

Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease


Research Interests:

Dr Justice’s research aims to merge mouse modeling with clinical genetics to understand the basis for human diseases, and to exploit models to improve disease symptoms. Two major projects are 1) eliminating tumour-initiating cells in childhood cancers and 2) discovering pathways for therapeutic intervention in Rett Syndrome through genetic suppressors.
