Research & Patient Center
Dr. Teepu Siddique, Les Turner ALS Foundation/Herbert C. Wenske Foundation Professor and Director of the Neuromuscular Disorders Program at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, is recognized internationally as an expert in the genetics of ALS. Dr. Siddique’s laboratory at the Les Turner ALS Center at Northwestern Medicine is the only research lab that employs a full-time genetic counselor to discuss the complex issues associated with risk assessment and genetic testing for ALS.
Genetic counseling is available for families who may have one of the genes responsible for the familial form of ALS. The genetic counselor is closely involved in recording genetic information, drawing up pedigrees and educating patients and their families.
