Research, Education, and Support



Researchers in Medical Genetics are involved in laboratory and patient-oriented research leading to earlier detection and better management of inherited diseases. We are committed to safely bringing recent discoveries to our patients at Children's Hospital and around the world. Some of our current clinical trials of treatment of genetic disorders include evaluating medications for treatment of Down Syndrome, evaluating enzyme replacement in Pompe disease, and evaluating various treatments of hyperammonemia resulting from cirrhosis.

Genetics Research and Education


Our educational program includes

  • An ACGME training program in Clinical Genetics.
  • An ACMGE accredited Clinical Molecular Genetics training program
  • An Nurse Practitioner training program in genetics: Better Outcomes of Lysosomal Disease (BOLD) fellowship.
  • Opportunities for post-doctoral research fellowship with division faculty.
  • Elective rotations for undergraduate, graduate and medical students, genetic counseling students, resident physicians and fellows.
