Mustafa Tekin, M.D., an Associate Professor in the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics, is a board certified clinical geneticist and expert on phenotypic and genotypic characterization of a variety of Mendelian disorders with a particular emphasis on hearing loss. His laboratory has discovered mutations in SERPINB6, FGF3, and MASP1 as causes of nonsyndromic and syndromic forms of hearing loss and demonstrated the fundamental roles the products of these genes play during embryonic development and for the maintainance of physiological functions.
