Boston Children's Hospital oversees the largest and most active research effort at any pediatric center in the world. Our Brain Center is home to hundreds of clinical experts and laboratory researchers, all working together to quickly apply scientific discoveries to new treatment approaches for children. This means we offer many therapies, including clinical trials, that might not be available elsewhere.
Genetics researcher Alan Beggs, PhD, and his team are exploring how genes influence neuromuscular disorders. They hope to use this knowledge to develop new diagnostics and therapies.
