Manton Center for Orphan Disease Research | Our Team

The Manton Center's Core Faculty currently conducts research that involves patients and scientific collaborators from The United States and 38 other nations around the globe. In Children's laboratories and clinics, the world's most talented and creative doctors and researchers combine their individual and collective expertise to pinpoint the genetic underpinnings of orphan diseases. These scientists are working to uncover exactly how disease processes work and how they can be interrupted or stopped.
