Clinical Biochemical Genetics

The clinical biochemical genetics fellowship program will allow the trainee to perform and interpret biochemical analyses. Instruction will be given on basic and advanced diagnostic techniques relevant to the diagnosis and management of human biochemical genetic diseases. Experience with a broad range of testing and disorders including follow-up newborn screening, lysosomal storage disorders, congenital disorders of glycosylation, fatty acid oxidation disorders, organic acidurias and creatine biosynthesis disorders will be covered. Training will also include a basic understanding of the integration of molecular data into biochemical genetic testing.

An individual completing the fellowship program will possess the skills required for certification by the ABMGG including:

  • The ability to supervise and direct the operations of a clinical biochemical genetic diagnostic laboratory.
  • The application of biochemical techniques to the diagnosis and management of genetic biochemical/metabolic diseases.
  • The etiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and management of human inherited biochemical conditions.
  • The ability to appropriately interpret and communicate biochemical laboratory results as a consultant to other clinicians, genetic counselors or directly to patients in cooperation with a clinical staff.
