The Beggs Laboratory at Boston Children's Hospital has a new genetic counsellor, Lindsay Swanson.
Lindsay can help with inquiries about inheritance patterns, research
studies and general information about the congenital myopathies,
including centronuclear and myotubular myopathy.
She uses her genetic counselling skills to identify and recruit
study participants, design recruitment materials and gather and analyse
The Beggs Laboratory congenital myopathy research programme involves
over 1000 people with different congenital myopathies, including more
than 200 with CNM / MTM. Their research is focused on identifying the
genes involved in the congenital myopathies and in learning more about
what function these genes play in the body. Their hope is that learning
more about these conditions will eventually allow for improved diagnosis
and treatment of patients with congenital myopathies.
Lindsay received her Master's Degree in genetic counselling from the University of Minnesota in April 2012 and joined the Beggs Laboratory in July 2012. She is excited to begin working with individuals and families with congenital myopathies.
