About the Author

Martin K. (Casey) Childers, D.O., Ph.D. is a professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and Investigator at the Institute for Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine, University of Washington. He is a graduate of Seattle Pacific University (B.A., Music Performance), Western University (D.O., Medicine, Osteopathic) and The University of Missouri (Ph.D., Physiology & Pharmacology; residency, Rehabilitation Medicine). The Childers' laboratory works in two areas of investigation. In a series of preclinical studies, they address the hurdles required for systemic gene replacement delivery for patients with X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy (XLMTM). In other studies, they use a "disease in a dish" approach with induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to study heart disease in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Dr. Childers clinical medicine practice at the University of Washington Medical Center is dedicated to serve patients with neuromuscular diseases.
