Laboratory of Neurogenomics and novel therapies

Our Focus

We are dedicated to providing innovative and compassionate care for patients and families with neuromuscular disorders while working to understand how and why they occur. It is our hope that once these disorders are understood, it will be possible to develop effective therapies.

About Us

Our research program was established in 1976 when funding was provided by the Les Turner ALS Foundation for Northwestern’s first ALS research laboratory. Teepu Siddique, M.D. joined Northwestern in 1991 as the Director of the Neuromuscular Disorders Program and its research component has grown exponentially since.
