About The Lab

The Wagner Lab is dedicated to basic and translational research towards the expansion of knowledge and development of therapies related to genetic muscle disorders.  Under the direction of Dr. Kathryn Wagner MD PhD, the Wagner Lab is a key component of the Center for Genetic Muscle Disorders, allowing clinical experience to inform and direct laboratory research while conversely promoting the translation of successful laboratory research to the development of therapeutics for patients in need.


The Wagner Lab is located within the Hugo W. Moser Research Institute at Kennedy Krieger on the Johns Hopkins University East Baltimore Medical Campus. State-of-the art facilities for tissue culture, molecular biology, animal procedures, and microscopy are utilized by the lab.
