Personal profile

Research Interests

I am primarily interested in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with inherited metabolic disorders and in clinical trials of new therapies for rare disorders. I have particular interest and expertise in disorders diagnosed through newborn screening (phenylketonuria and others) and in lysosomal storage disorders.
