Division Highlights - Genetics & Metabolism

The Division of Genetics and Metabolism provides comprehensive services to help patients and families cope medically and emotionally with a wide range of genetic disorders.

We have maintained a commitment to making these services available statewide through over 30 years of partnership with the Waisman Center on the UW campus and the State Division of Public Health, and through leadership of the Wisconsin State Genetics System.

Research interests include the genetic bases of inherited disorders and congenital anomalies, molecular techniques for newborn screening, diagnosis of nonsyndromic intellectual disability, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, and the genetic causes of vertebral anomalies and bone dysplasias.
