Clinical Interests

Dr. Boyd's clinical interests focus on: dysmorphology; delineation of new syndromes; congenital anomalies - craniosynostosis, oral clefts, facial asymmetry syndromes, exstrophy-epispadias complex; and lysosomal storage disorders. His research interests focus on: clinical and molecular dysmorphology; genes causing congenital defects; genetic analysis of multifactorial diseases; genetic epidemiology; and disorders of intracellular trafficking.

Philosophy of Care:

Dr. Boyd's mission is to further the understanding of human heredity and genetic medicine, and to use that knowledge to treat and prevent disease.
