Genetics Program at Seattle Children's
Genetics Laboratories at Seattle Children's
Biochemical Genetics Program at Seattle Children's
Seattle Children's has one of the largest programs in the United States devoted to genetics research and care for children with genetic conditions. We are home to the oldest and most well-known referral center for genetic disorders in the Pacific Northwest.
The goal of the Center for Clinical Genomics is to expand the study of human genetics into areas of clinical research where the application of such strategies has been infrequent.

Human Genetics (Bamshad Laboratory)
The Bamshad Lab is focused on understanding how evolutionary processes and demographic history have shaped patterns of genetic variation among humans, and how such variation influences differences in physical features and disease susceptibility among humans.
Malformation Research Program
The Hindbrain Malformation Research Program studies the biology of hindbrain malformations and neurodevelopmental disorders such as Joubert syndrome, rhombencephalosynapsis, pontine tegmental cap dysplasia, and Chudley-McCullough syndrome to advance our understanding of brain development and improve the lives of families affected by these conditions.
The Mefford Lab's research focuses on the identification of novel genes and genomic regions responsible for pediatric disorders and congenital abnormalities using genomic tools such as array comparative genomic hybridization and sequence analysis.
The Miller Lab studies Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy and associated developmentally regulated gene expression. In addition we are interested in novel therapeutic strategies for disease treatment.
The Cristine M. Trahms Program for Phenylketonuria provides resources to families of children with phenylketonuria (PKU) and professionals who work with children with PKU.
