Dr. Ieke Ginjaar is a staff member at the Department of Clinical genetics. She is responsible for DNA/RNA and protein diagnostics of DMD/BMD and LGMD in the Netherlands. She set up dystrophin analysis in muscle tissue and still performs immunological analysis for D/BMD/LGMD patients. Her mutation database, which includes all mutations found in Dutch B/DMD patients will be instrumental in setting up a Dutch DMD patient registry that includes clinical data as well.
