Miriam Schmidts assistant professor

Miriam Schmidts is a clinician-scientist with a longstanding interest in ciliopathy genetics and therapeutics, including renal disease, primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), and ciliary chondrodysplasias such as Jeune Syndrome and short-rib polydactyly syndromes. In addition to genetic technologies, she uses zebrafish and mouse model systems to dissect the underlying molecular defects and high-throughput substance screening to identify new pharmacological targets. Miriam Schmidts has joined RIMLS in 2015 as a Hypatia Tenure Track fellow.
