Charles Billington

Assistant Professor, Division of Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism
Faculty, Department of Pediatrics


Dr. Billington's research looks at variable phenotypes of genetic conditions. In the past he has done research on Williams Syndrome and on animal models of brain and facial malformations and now is interested in working to develop work around the variability of brain and vascular differences in other genomic syndromes. Clinically he is also interested care for patients with inborn errors of metabolism, particularly urea cycle disorders and maple syrup urine disease. He is excited to return to Minnesota to join a growing pediatrics genetics group.
