The Manton Center for Orphan Disease Research
Ingrid A. Holm, MD, MPH
Dr. Holm is the director of the Phenotyping Core of the Program in Genomics, and oversees the interactions between the Gene Discover Core (GDC) participants.
Ingrid Holm's research focuses on the genetics of bone disorders. She has performed research in the role of mutations in the PHEX gene in hypophosphatemic rickets. Her studies have sought to elucidate the genetic and environmental components of disorders of bone mineralization. She is particularly interested in the contribution of enviromental factors to the low bone mass seen in indiviuals with neuromuscular diseases, such as muscular dystrophy.
Dr. Holm is interested in the genetics of complex traits. As director of the Phenotype Core of the Program in Genomics, she has worked with researchers to develop clinical genetic research projects in diabetes, autism, congenital heart disease, and atopic dermatitis, and has her own project in the genetic contributions to congenitial hip dysplasia.
