Research and professional interests

  •  Bone metabolism in Lysosomal Storage Disorders
  •  The role of Homotrimeric Type I Collagen in renal fibrosis

Dr. Amanda Brodeur is a medical geneticist and biochemist with a particular interest in characterizing and further understanding metabolic genetic disorders and their response to treatment. She also has a particular interest in renal pathology. The aim of her research is to gain a greater understanding of the bone abnormalities seen in patients with Hurler syndrome in an effort to improve current therapies or find new therapeutic strategies to further improve their quality of life.
