The University of Michigan School of Dentistry
The Hatch laboratory studies craniofacial skeletal development, using mouse models for genetic and epigenetic study, identification and phenotyping of developmental changes and cell biologic defects underlying craniosynostosis and cranial base defects.
We strive to delineate molecular defects in essential developmental pathways to ultimately provide improved prognostic indicators and medical treatment options for patient with craniofacial abnormalities.

Dr. Hatch completed her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from Harvard University in 1999. She earned an orthodontic clinical specialty certificate (2002) and a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology (2005) from the University of Washington in Seattle. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship as a trainee on the institutional Tissue Engineering and Regeneration (TEAM) T32 training grant at the University of Michigan, School of Dentistry. She was hired as an Assistant Professor of Dentistry at the University of Michigan in 2008 and became a tenured Associate Professor of Dentistry in 2015.
Dr. Hatch became the Lysle E. Johnston, Jr. Collegiate Professor of Orthodontics and Chair of the Department of Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry in 2016. Dr. Hatch’s research concentrates on craniofacial skeletal development with a goal of identifying primary mediators and modifiers of abnormal craniofacial skeletal development. She also works to establish biologic mediators for control of orthodontic tooth movement and retention.
