Angelman Clinic opens at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)

The Angelman Syndrome Foundation and the Dup15q Alliance are proud to announce plans to launch a new clinic at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to better serve the Angelman and Dup15q communities.

“We are excited to join other Angelman and Dup15q centers around the country to continue to provide quality care for individuals with these disorders,” said Eric Marsh, MD, an attending pediatric neurologist in the Division of Neurology (CHOP). “We look forward to continuing to build our knowledge about these conditions and are grateful for the opportunity to participate in this critical work.”

As a designated clinic, CHOP will become part of the Linking Angelman and Dup15q Data for Expanded Research (LADDER) Network. This distinction will foster collaboration between medical providers and industry partners to provide the best possible care to this patient population. 

“We feel privileged to welcome CHOP to our family of Dup15q Clinics,” said Carrie Howell, Executive Director of Dup15q Alliance.  “CHOP’s passion for driving excellent patient care will give our dup15q syndrome families confidence that they are receiving the care their child deserves.  With an increase of patients being diagnosed with dup15q syndrome, this clinic will serve a critical need for our community.”

“We are honored to work with CHOP, as we unite forces to usher in a crucial clinic for this patient population,” said Amanda Moore, CEO of the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. Our mission is to serve families by giving them the resources they need.  This will strengthen that mission through clinical care and access to future treatments and clinical trials.”
