  • Facilitate research on screened and treated patients to define effectiveness of treatments and long-term outcomes.
  • Facilitate research on the development of new methods and technologies.

  • "By contributing to our understanding of patients with genetic diseases, this contract will accelerate research in diseases related to newborn screening and greatly improve the process by which public health decisions are made about the expansion of newborn screening," said Dr. Watson.

    "ACMG is proud to provide leadership for the medical community in the area of newborn screening and in particular translating scientific advances into improved health," said Joe Leigh Simpson, MD, FACMG, president of the ACMG. "This grant is recognition that the optimal treatment of these rare conditions requires collaborative efforts among geneticists and other physicians throughout the nation."
