Professional Statement

Carolina J. Jorgez, Ph.D., specializes in the study of the genetics of male infertility and the causes of congenital and acquired pediatric urologic diseases ranging from common defects such as cryptorchidism and hypospadias to rare ones such as bladder exstrophy. By understanding etiology, she hopes to advance prospects for treatment. In order to understand the molecular mechanisms and phenotypic effects of genomic rearrangements in the development of the genitourinary tract, she uses different molecular techniques that allow one to identify and characterize the breakpoints of submicroscopic chromosome deletions and duplications, to infer mechanisms and to study patients to determine potential phenotypic consequences of copy-number variation and gene mutations. In addition, she is interested in learning how the function of the mitochondrion is important in the development of the genitourinary tract.
