Alan W. Flake, M.D.

Dr. Flake's lab performs research on prenatal stem cell and gene therapy, essentially trying to cure every disease that's able to be diagnosed in utero. Current stem cell projects include treatment for immunodeficiency syndromes, hemophilia, sickle cell, and myelomeningocele. Current gene therapy projects include treatment for multiple neurodegenerative diseases, epidermolysis bullosa, and breast cancer (via BRCA).
