Editorial Board Member - JCEG
Dr. Saima Riazuddin is currently working as an associate Professor of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at University of Maryland, United states. Her research has been publishe in highly ranked scientific journals. Dr. Riazuddin is the principal investigator of two NIH R01 grants and multiple other national and international grants.
Dr. Saima Riazuddin’s research interests include:
Investigating the molecular and genetic basis of hearing loss and deaf-blindness (Usher syndrome), utilizing human and mouse genetics. The pedigrees are analyzed by linkage analysis and through various genetic approaches genes essential for hearing process are identified. Functional analysis of the newly identified genes associated with deafness and deaf-blindness promises new insights into the molecular mechanisms of auditory and vision functions and will facilitate the rational design of therapies for hearing loss and blindness.
