Webinar: Exploring the Gene Mutation Discovery
Dr. Heiko Reutter is a world renown researcher in the field of pediatrics and human genetics. In this webinar Dr. Reutter will share his research and insights on the discovery of a genetic mutation associated with bladder exstrophy.
Recorded in 2015.
About Dr. Reutter
Dr Heiko Reutter was awarded his M.D. from the University of Tübingen in Tübingen, Germany, in 2000. After graduation, Dr Reutter did his residency in Paediatrics and Human Genetics and Fellowship in Neonatology at the University of Bonn in Bonn, Germany. In 2013 he joined the faculty of the University of Bonn in the Department of Neonatology and Paediatric Intensive Care, as well as becoming a Senior Researcher at the Institute of Human Genetics there.
Dr Reutter’s research interests initially included the genetic and non-genetic causes of the exstrophy-epispadias complex. From 2004 until 2009 his attention turned to research on the genetic causes of orofacial clefts. Since 2008 he has expanded his research to anorectal malformations. From 2009 until 2012 he coordinated the German Network for Congenital Uro-Rectal Malformations. Since 2011 he is the spokesman of the research centre for rare uro-rectal malformations at the centre for rare disease of the University of Bonn. In 1998, he co-founded the German support group for those affected with the exstrophy-epispadias complex.
