Research and publications from the Clinical Genetics Unit

The Clinical Genetics Unit works closely with the Molecular Medicine Unit and the Clinical and Molecular Genetics Unit at the National Children's Research Centre in a number of areas of research and a number of the consultants have joint appointments with dedicated research time.


The department also work with researchers from across Ireland and internationally to recruit to a wide variety of research studies relevant to the children and families seen in our clinics.

The principal focus of the research is the delineation of genetic disorders and the identification and clinical translation of their underlying causes. Particular areas of research expertise include clinical dysmorphology, the genetics of cleft lip and palate, the genetics of hearing loss, Fragile X syndrome, skeletal dysplasias and prenatal diagnosis.
