Welcome to the Kimonis Laboratory, a molecular genetics lab within the Division of Genetics at Children's Hospital, Boston and affiliated with Harvard Medical School. The purpose of this website is to introduce visitors to our research. We are a group of scientists and doctors at Children's Hospital who are studying genetic causes of muscle disease. Dr Kimonis is particularly interested in inherited muscle disorders that occur in combination with diseases of bone and/or frontotemporal dementia. Families with a combination of muscle disease and Paget disease of bone have been studied in the laboratory and the gene has been localized to chromosome 9 and identified as VCP (Valosin containing protein).

Thank you for visiting. If you have any comments or questions for us, or just want to say hello, please click on the 'Contact Us' link and send us a message.
