Kevin Booth
Research Assistant (Hearing)
Person Type: 

Smart, energetic, young scientist, who does research in the molecular genetics of hearing loss field.  I like plotting audiograms, fishing for variants in the human genome, long meetings discussing patient data, spending time with my bacteria, writing manuscripts and working out (mostly my thumbs).  Turn ons: variant segregation with the hearing loss phenotype; novel gene discovery; experiments working; dissecting pathogenic mechanisms related to the hearing process.  Turn offs: poor experiment design; poor data; inappropriate conclusions about data.  Dream vacation; going to Kings College in London England.  If you are interested in a collaboration with the best genetic hearing loss research lab and team in the world e-mail me at kevin-booth@uiowa.edu (please, only serious inquiries).
