Lysosomal Storage Research Group

We are a multidisciplinary team of medical specialists in various aspects of lysosomal storage diseases. The group's main focus is on clinical research and patient care, involving the translation and evaluation of new treatments for LSDs. 

Our group’s main location for paediatrics, clinical care and research is in the

Division of Clinical and Metabolic Genetics  at The Hospital for Sick Children.  

 The Hospital for Sick Children.

Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are a group of over 40 rare inborn errors of metabolism, usually characterized by deficiencies of a specific lysosomal enzyme which in turn leads to accumulation or storage of metabolites within the cells.


This website features pertinent information, interactive educational software for diagnosis and treatment of Hunter disease (Hunter disease eClinic) and a Lysosomal Storage Research community discussion board freely accessible to anyone with a registered account.

A part of our team looking after the adult patient population is located at UHN satellite locations. The Lysosomal Storage Research Group is actively collaborating with other specialists in the field which are part of other hospitals and universities.
