Laboratory investigations of MPS diseases

Updated: Jul 29

Professor Simon Heales and Dr Derek Burke of the Enzyme Unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital have added to their article on how they kept their lab running during the pandemic with a video lecture on what happens from a laboratory point of view when it comes to making a diagnosis. Simon and Derek take you through the stages of diagnosis with a thoroughly enjoyable approach and health warnings that it may contain scenes of graphic science facts!
