Hello, this is the “Newborn Screening SPOTlight”. This podcast is about the advancement of rare disease research told by health professionals, researchers, parents and advocates. This podcast is for you to learn how newborn screening research saves the lives of babies every day through discoveries of new technologies and treatments. You will hear stories from experts who treat babies, the families who care for them, and the researchers who make it all happen. We are your co-hosts, Dr. Kee Chan and Dr. Amy Brower. We are from the Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (also known NBSTRN). Our work is supported by one of the institutes at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda Maryland called the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (also known as NICHD). We are from the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (also known as ACMG) and ACMG leads the NBSTRN. Screening babies saves lives every day, and research advances newborn screening by developing new technologies to screen, diagnose and treat. NBSTRN helps accelerate research by creating tools, resources and expertise for researchers, doctors, families, patients and advocates.
