Research Focus: 

My research is interested in the identification of autosomal recessive genes through the utilization of the inbred populations of the Middle East. This research interest is not restricted to specific phenotypes, but was mainly targeting the study of Mendelian disorders. Currently, we use a similar approach to gene identification to study the etiologic role of autosomal recessive genes in complex disorders and in particular those leading to childhood disabilities.
