Kevin M. Flanigan, MD, is an attending neurologist at Nationwide Children’s and Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Dr. Flanigan is the director of the Center for Gene Therapy in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s and a leading expert in neuromuscular disorders. He is also on the physician team for Nationwide Children’s world-class Neuromuscular Disorders program, which provides coordinated care with pediatric experts from more than a dozen specialties.

Dr. Flanigan earned his medical degree from Rush Medical College and completed his internship at the University of Michigan Health System before completing his Neurology residency and fellowship in Neuromuscular Disorders at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and an additional post-doctoral laboratory fellowship in Human Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Utah.

His primary research interest is in the genetic and molecular characterization of inherited neuromuscular diseases, and the development of therapies directed toward these diseases. A major focus of his laboratory concerns genotype/phenotype correlation in, with the intention of increasing our understanding of the pathogenesis in this disease and translating this understanding into improved therapies. Dr. Flanigan is named among the “Best Doctors in America” and joined Nationwide Children’s Hospital in October 2009.

Areas of Interest:

  • The Flanigan Lab focuses on the genetic and molecular characterization of inherited neuromuscular diseases, and toward the development of therapies directed toward these diseases. A major focus of the laboratory concerns genotype/phenotype correlation in dystrophinopathies (Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy), with the intention of increasing our understanding of the pathogenesis in this disease and translating this understanding into improved therapies. For example, studies of rare patient mutations have generated hypotheses regarding function of the dystrophin protein, now under study in the lab. Other projects in the lab are dedicated to the molecular characterization of both rare and common neurologic syndromes. One such disorder is giant axonal neuropathy, a rare inherited disorder characterized by degeneration of peripheral nerves with giant axonal swelling full of disorganized neurofilaments. Recent disease gene mapping projects have characterized gene loci responsible for an uncommon form of congenital muscular dystrophy, a novel form of hereditary spastic paraplegia, and a novel form of juvenile recessive amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The goal of the laboratory is a better understanding and improved treatment of these and related diseases. Lab Web Site:
