Genetic dysfunction of ion channels causes disorders with altered nerve or muscle excitability, impaired neuromuscular junction transmission or altered excitation contraction coupling. Clinical manifestations include myotonia and weakness that may be fatal, episodic and progressive. The focus of Beeson is to translate an understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease at the neuromuscular synapse into treatments, also working to provide a National Advisory and Diagnostic Service for congenital myasthenic syndromes.
