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.


Research Partnership!

We are proud to announce that we have joined the JumpStart program with the Orphan Disease Center. The Orphan Disease center, a center within the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, works closely with patient groups and foundations, pharma and biotech, and the academic community to drive therapeutic development for rare diseases.

As part of this program, our first two research goals are:

  1. Raise $100,000 for potential research grants
  2. Identify 250 patients for potential future research
