H. Houston Merritt Center for Inherited Myopathies and Mitochondrial Diseases

The H. Houston Merritt Center For Neuromuscular and Mitochondrial Disorders studies inherited myopathies, including:

  • Muscular dystrophies
  • Congenital myopathies
  • Myofibrillar myopathies
  • Metabolic myopathies

Our team specializes in the evaluation and treatment of these genetic muscle diseases, and collaborates with a number of other Columbia researchers from other departments and laboratories, including the Laboratory of Metabolic and Mitochondrial Disease.
