  • Phone: 617-726-5721




Medical professionals and researchers both in- and outside of Massachusetts General Hospital use our services to help diagnose their patients, and conduct research on rare neurodegenerative disorders.

In most cases, The Neurogenetics DNA Diagnostic Laboratory is the only U.S. laboratory conducting testing for the rarer disorders. Some of our test protocols have been developed directly from the Massachusetts General Hospital research laboratories that are actively working in these areas. We maintain a close working affiliation with these laboratories, which continually keeps our technology and interpretation up to date.

We support ongoing translational research in Norrie disease, NCL diseases, dystonia disorders and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) disorders.
