Dr. Huentelman, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in TGen's Neurogenomics Division, where he oversees research programs focused on sensory disorders, including hearing and vision loss, and on aging and age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and the genetics of learning and memory highlighted recently by the launch of TGen's MindCrowd project (http://www.MindCrowd.org).

Dr. Huentelman also is the Co-Director of TGen's Center for Rare Childhood Disorders, which investigates uncommon neurologic problems among children, often those that are only a collection of symptoms with no diagnosis.
