MTA-SE “Momentum” Nephrogenetic Research Group

Leader:     Dr. Kálmán Tory
E-mail: tory.kalman@med.semmelweis-univ.hu
Clinic: 1st Department of Paediatrics

Overview

Research topic:

Our research focuses on two main topics: identification of interallelic interactions in autosomal recessive disorders that result in an incomplete penetrance and identification of novel genes in paediatric single-genedisorders. We use a population genetic approach for the detection of interallelic interactions and exom-sequencing of families with extremely rare, uncharacterized disorders for the identification of novel genes. Cell culturestudies (transfected human cell lines) and animal (zebrafish, C. elegans) models are used to validate the interactions and to understand the function of the identified novel protein(s).

Duration: 2015-2020
