Moser Center for Leukodystrophies
New Center’s Innovative Model Provides Comprehensive Care for Patients and Families
For more than 30 years, Kennedy Krieger Institute has been globally recognized as an authority on the study and care for patients diagnosed with a wide range of leukodystophies. This international reputation is thanks to the lasting legacy of the late Dr. Hugo W. Moser, one of the world’s foremost leader in the field of leukodystrophies. Dr. Moser’s visionary thinking and belief that innovative research should enhance clinical care had a profound impact on his patients, peers, and generations of former trainees, who remain highly dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with leukodystrophies worldwide.
Today, that commitment continues--through the Moser Center for Leukodystrophies at Kennedy Krieger where leading edge techniques in neuroimaging, genomics, biomedical engineering, and nanotechnology help our experts to enhance understanding, diagnosis, and treatment.
The center provides comprehensive care to patients with leukodystrophies through an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together the fields of neurogenetics, genetic counseling, neurorehabilitation, endocrinology, and urology, along with physical, occupational, speech, and aquatic therapy. Following in Dr Moser’s footsteps, the center works collaboratively with other leukodystrophy centers across the country and around the world to ensure that each and every patient receives the best possible care.
