Director, induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Core Facility
Associate Professor, Department of Microbiology and Immunology
Derek M. Dykxhoorn, Ph.D., is an Associate Research Professor in the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics, and the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. He is also Director of the Center for Human Molecular Genetics and Director of the induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core Facility at the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics. He is a molecular biologist interested in the mechanisms that regulate pathogenesis. He has over 20 years of experience in Molecular Biology and Biochemical research, including extensive experience using functional genomics and gene perturbation approaches for gene function analysis. Dr. Dyxhoorn’s current research focuses on understanding the impact that genetic variations have on the development of various disorders, including, neurological disorders (autism spectrum disorder, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, and sensorineural disorders) and cardiovascular disease (Long Qt syndrome). These experiments combine stem cell-based disease modeling with a variety of molecular biological, genomic, and cell biological approaches to examine the underlying molecular mechanisms that drive disease pathogenesis.
