Research Interests

Dr. Warman (Chardon)'s primary research interest focuses on identifying the molecular basis and the clinical characterization of rare myopathies, utilizing next generation sequencing (NGS), including whole exome sequencing and the clinical application of targeted large scale gene panels. Dr. Warman is utilizing next generation sequencing to drive gene identification and the phenotypic expansion of many rare neuromuscular disorders.  She and her colleagues have successfully identified several novel genes, including a novel limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LIMS2) and are continuing to assess exome, clinome and RNA sequencing as clinical tools to help patients living with neuromuscular disease.
