Centers & Contact Information
Hans C. Andersson, MD is the Karen Gore Chair of Human Genetics and Director of the Hayward Genetics Center at the Tulane University Medical School where he directs the Biochemical Genetics Lab. Following fellowship training in clinical genetics and cell biology at the National Institutes of Health and University Gottingen, Germany, Dr. Andersson holds American Board of Medical Genetics certification in Clinical Genetics and Clinical Biochemical/Molecular Genetics. His research has elucidated clinical features and pathophysiology of inherited metabolic genetic disorders. Dr. Andersson is the past President of the SouthEast Regional Genetics Group (SERGG), holds membership of numerous national societies including the Society of Pediatric Research and is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Pediatrics. He is past Co-Chair of the National Coordinating Center Telegenetics Workgroup and a current member of the Disaster Preparedness Workgroup. Dr. Andersson recently presented this work on SERC telegenetics in plenary session at the American Telemedicine Association meeting (Tampa, May, 2011).

SERC/GMDI announces Nutrition Management Guidelines for MSUD

SERC/GMDI announces Nutrition Management Guidelines for MSUD

Management Guidelines cover the evaluation, assessment, and management of patients known to have a particular condition. SERC and GDMI partnered to develop nutrition management guidelines based on our rigorous DNDF methodology. The creation of the nutrition management guidelines has been a multi-year project to develop evidence and consensus based guidelines of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM).   This is the first publicly available MSUD guideline to all metabolic dietitians, physicians and other clinicians. The portal utilizes a tool for development of guidelines of genetic metabolic disorders for which there is little published scientific evidence. The practice recommendations are an effort to increase standardization of care and enable outcomes studies within and across centers. When warranted by developments in MSUD research and clinical practice, these guidelines will be updated periodically and will be maintained through a Dynamic process.
