Nemaline Myopathy group

Folkhälsan Research Center

Our mission

Our aims are to identify the genetic causes of the nemaline myopathies (NM) and related disorders, elucidate the pathogenetic mechanisms, develop diagnostic methods, and work towards therapeutic trials. One focus is on the nebulin gene. We have established mutational and clinical databases on NM.
