Reza Asadollahi is an MD, PhD and medical geneticist affiliated to the Institute of Medical Genetics, University of Zurich. His area of expertise is genotype-phenotype correlation with a focus on neurodevelopmental disorders. His work in collaboration with colleagues and patient families has led to the discovery of multiple novel morbid genes causing neurodevelopmental disorders (including MED13L syndrome), and clinical and mutational spectra of the disorders. His research also focuses on molecular and cellular phenotyping in patient-derived cells to unravel the underlying disease mechanisms for developing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
