BIO

I directed the Molecular Genetics Laboratory at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, providing genetic testing for inherited disorders. I have a major research interest in vesicoureteric reflux, a congenital anomaly causing kidney damage. I am involved in networks to measure and improve the quality of genetic testing in Europe and world-wide. In these networks, I also provide expertise in reference materials and the regulation of diagnostic devices.
