The AMGP was established in 1998 to diagnose, treat and study genetic disorders affecting adults. There are three main parts of our program:
The Adult Medical Genetics Clinic: Our weekly clinic is based at the University of Colorado Hospital and specifically focuses on adults and their families affected by genetic conditions. We offer genetic consultations, which include diagnosis (including presymptomatic genetic testing), genetic counseling and care for genetic conditions.
Research: We conduct several research studies. Current projects include: inherited cardiomyopathies, lysosomal storage disorders, intellectual disabilities, autism and polycystic kidney disease.
Educational Activities: Our educational outreach consists of various lectures we have provided to health professionals and the lay community. We are involved in the training of residents and genetic counseling students.
