To give a taste, the most recent of his 81 publications recorded at this site is entitled 'The p.G154S mutation of the alpha-B crystallin gene (CRYAB) causes late-onset distal myopathy'. In layman's terms, Benedikt is specialised in neurology, more particularly myotonic dystrophy which is a genetic, neuromuscular disorder which is characterized by the slow relaxation of the muscles after voluntary contraction, usually becoming apparent in early adulthood. Due to its genetic origin, research on this disease involves the analysis of mutations in the DNA.
