Biography :

Dr Katsanis obtained his first degree in Genetics from UCL in London in 1993 and his doctorate from Imperial College, University of London in 1997. He then joined the laboratory of Dr Lupski at Baylor College of Medicine, where he initiated his studies on Bardet-Biedl syndrome.

In 2002, he relocated to the Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, where he led studies that unified several allied conditions under the ciliopathy umbrella. In 2009, he moved to Duke University to establish the Center for Human Disease Modeling, where he is the Director; this new structure aims to facilitate collaboration across disciplines and to develop physiologically relevant tools to study variation found in human patient genomes. As part of that effort, Dr Katsanis leads the Taskforce for Neonatal Genomics.

This multidisciplinary group of physicians and basic scientists strives to synthesize genomic and biological data for the faster diagnosis, improved/focused clinical care, and potential therapeutic paradigms, for infants and neotates with genetic conditions.
