Kim L. McBride, MD, MS, is an Investigator in the Center for Molecular and Human Genetics at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Saskatchewan, completed a residency in pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic and fellowships in clinical genetics and biochemical genetics at Baylor College of Medicine. He also received his Master’s degree at Baylor in the Clinical Scientist Training Program. Dr. McBride is board certified in pediatrics, clinical genetics and clinical biochemical genetics. He is a co-director of the Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic and also participates in the pediatric genetics and metabolic clinics. He cares for both pediatric and adult patients, with a special interest in genetic disorders involving the heart, inborn errors of metabolism, and lysosomal storage disease (particularly with enzyme replacement therapies). His research focuses on the genetics of congenital heart disease. National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funding was awarded to study the genetics of left ventricular outflow tract malformations (congenital aortic valve stenosis, coarctation of the aorta and hypoplastic left heart syndrome). This translational work is using linkage and association methods to dissect the genetic etiologies of these defects by high throughput genotyping methods. Several genes and cardiac developmental pathways have been identified for further exploration in the lab. He is the director of the Cell Line Core Shared Facility in The Research Institute.
