Biography

Paul T. Martin, PhD, is a Principal Investigator in the Center for Gene Therapy at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. He is Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Physiology and Cell Biology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He is also Associate Director of the NIH Center of Research Translation in Muscular Dystrophy Therapeutic Develpment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Dr. Martin’s NIH-funded research program focuses on defining functional roles for cell surface carbohydrates in neuromuscular development and disease. Dr. Martin’s lab has identified particular carbohydrates that, when overexpressed in muscle cells, can prevent muscular dystrophy from occurring in a number of forms of the disease. Current work is focused on translating these findings into therapies that can be used by patients with these disorders. Additional work focuses on on the development of novel protein and gene therapies for congenital forms of muscular dystrophy.
