Amino Acid Metabolism, Inborn Errors

Research interests

We are involved in Clinical Research of all areas of inborn errors of metabolism with special interest in Aminoacodopathies, Organoacidurias, Fatty acid oxidation defects, Disorders of Carbohydrate Metabolism and Lysososmal Storage disorders. .Additionally we are involved in newborn screening for metabolic and endocrine disorders and expanding pilot projects like SCIDD , SMA and others

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

Newborn Screening Laboratory ( Tandem Mass Spectrometry ) and Selective Metabolic Diagnostic laboratory ( organic acids in urine, Aminoacids, Acylcarnitine Profiles , u.a.)
