Graduate Student Researcher (Renal)
Person Type: 

I am currently a graduate student in the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Genetics at the University of Iowa. I am involved in genetic researches of aHUS, a complement-coagulation related ultra-rare renal disorder. A targeted massively parallel sequencing panel called “CasCADE” is used to screen 85 genes in the complement and coagulation pathways to identify new genetic contributions to aHUS. Several assays are also used to test the complement and coagulation function in patients to investigate the disease mechanism.
