    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    The Gilad lab focuses on studying genetic and regulatory differences between humans and our close evolutionary relatives. Our long term goal is to identify the genetic basis of human-specific traits, including genetic variation that underlies higher susceptibility to certain diseases and disorders in humans than in other primates.
