From Bench to Bedside
UF has dedicated adult and pediatric Ataxia, ALS, Muscular Dystrophy, and Huntington Disease clinics. Drs. S.H. Subramony, James Wymer, Miguel Chuquilin, Nikolas McFarland, and their colleagues, provide expert evaluation for patients and families with genetic neuromuscular and neurological diseases. A multi-disciplinary team including physical, occupational, and speech therapists along with consulting cardiologists and pulmonologists participate in the care as needed. In addition to this ongoing care, one of the major goals of the Center for NeuroGenetics is to bridge the gap between research in the labs and clinical care of patients. The CNG also works very closely with Dr. Anthony Yachnis at UF Health in the Department of Pathology for the analysis of various human autopsy tissues.

Patients and families are offered opportunities to participate in research that may lead to better diagnosis and treatment strategies, including new gene discovery, studies of imaging and biochemical markers of disease, collection of natural history data that will improve “trial readiness” and clinical trials of novel medications as they become available.
