- Inborn errors of metabolism
- Metabolic disease of muscle and liver
- Crohn's Disease
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Dr. Slonim has long specialized in genetic errors of metabolism, and more recently also in a number of metabolic disorders of uncertain etiology such as Crohn’s disease and Chronic Fatigue syndrome. By extensively investigating the metabolic disturbances occurring in these disorders, he has devised therapies, consisting of special nutrition, exercise and in certain cases hormones, that attempt to correct these metabolic disturbances; in some disorders compensating for certain substrate deficiencies and in other disorders minimizing the detrimental effects of excessive metabolites.
The therapies devised from these investigations have resulted in marked clinical improvement in many of these disorders. Consequently, Dr. Slonim’s clinical research program attracts patients from throughout the USA and overseas seeking effective therapies for their rare, and often scientifically neglected, metabolic disorders.

- Neurogenetic disorders in children
Dr. Bush has an interdisciplinary background in clinical and developmental psychology, bioethics, neuroscience and genetics that informs her research on heritable disorders of infants and children. She is currently investigating the psychological and ethical implications of newborn screening and sharing neurogenetic information. Dr. Bush also writes dramatic vignettes (in collaboration with Karen Rothenberg, JD MPA at NHGRI) to enhance the discourse and understanding of complex psychosocial/ethical issues surrounding genomic research and clinical practice amongst the scientific, bioethical, and policy-making communities. These interactive dialogues are also used as a creative teaching vehicle for medical schools, as they bring to life the challenges facing both the physician-scientist and participant-patient concerning the informed consent process, returning primary genetic results involving children, and the disclosure of incidental findings.
