Kimonis Lab

The Kimonis Laboratory is a molecular genetics research program within the Division of Genetics & Genomic Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics at UC Irvine School of Medicine.

Kimonis lab researchers are dedicated to finding genetic clues and mutations behind rare and debilitating childhood diseases, including Prader-Willi syndrome, Pompe disease, Gaucher disease, Fabry disease and other rare genetic syndromes.

With leading-edge genomic sequencing and old-fashioned scientific sleuthing, physician-researchers such as Virginia Kimonis, MD, and other faculty members of the Department of Pediatrics' Division of Genetic and Genomic Medicine are paving the way to a greater understanding of diseases that affect millions.
