Thomas B. Friedman, Ph.D.

Chief, Laboratory of Molecular Genetics
Chief, Section on Human Genetics

Dr. Friedman received a B.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, where he worked with Tahir Mohammed Rizki on the molecular genetics of purine metabolism in Drosophila. After postdoctoral work studying galactosemia in humans at the National Institute of Mental Health, he became a faculty member in the Department of Zoology and the Department of Pediatrics and Human Development at Michigan State University. For five years, he was also the Director of the Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Genetics.

In 1996, he joined the NIDCD as the Chief, Laboratory of Molecular Genetics. Dr. Friedman's Section on Human Genetics at the NIDCD studies hereditary hearing loss in humans and animal models. His laboratory also studies the functions (cell biology and biochemistry) of proteins encoded by genes associated with deafness.
