Bio

Dr. Bayrak-Toydemir has focused her research efforts on understanding the molecular genetic characteristics of inherited vascular diseases. She primarily studies Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) disease. In addition to HHT, her research aims to identify genes that cause various inherited vascular malformations.

Dr. Bayrak-Toydemir is also interested in application of array technology and next generation sequencing to molecular diagnostics. Specifically, she has focused on detecting molecular genetic causes of mental retardation syndromes.
