Prof. Pervin Dincer is a translational medicine investigator at Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine Department of Medical Biology. Hacettepe University is a major reference center for rare diseases with a yearly outpatient load of about 100,000. Since 1994, she has been conducting research focused primarily on pathophysiology of hereditary muscle diseases.
Prof. Dincer’s laboratory has identified the 5 causative genes for autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD2) phenotypes including LGMD2K, LGMD2P, LGMD2Q, LGMD2R and LGMD2Y caused by mutation in POMT1, DAG1, PLEC1f, DES and TOR1AIP1 respectively.
Since 2015, Dincer has initiated a Zebrafish Research Laboratory and is using genome editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9 and TALEN in zebrafish for rare diseases modeling. Her team is using multi–omics approaches for screening of disease genes and functional annotation studies.
