MAST Genes Research Foundation
To improve the time to diagnosis
Into microtubule-associated serine/threonine kinase (MAST) genetic mutations
Improving Quality of Life
By developing therapies to support affected patients and families
So those with time, funds, and abilities can easily apply their gifts to achieve MAST Genes outcomes
The MAST Family of Genes
The MAST (Microtubule-Associated Serine/Threonine) kinases are large enzymes that are upstream of the PI3K signaling pathway that is a target for cancer and epilepsy therapies.
Mutations in these genes have been associated with developmental disabilities, seizures, changes in brain structure, and other issues.
