As a clinical geneticist, I am concerned with the diagnosis, cause and treatment of individuals and their families who present with a range of medical genetic problems. These include birth defects, chromosomal disorders, single gene disorders, and biochemical genetic problems. I have a particular interest in disorders of connective tissue including Marfan syndrome, Ehlers Danlos syndrome, the skeletal dysplasias and osteogenesis imperfections, as well as the genetics of hearing loss anddevelopmental disabilities.
