Dr. Runz's lecture addressed his clinical experience as a physician-scientist working with NPC and Lysosomal Storage Disorders patients in his clinic in Germany. Additionally, he discussed his research into a host of issues with NPC diagnostic testing, gene variants, mutational analysis, and population estimates. Dr. Runz described the span of phenotypic variability in NPC, the variations in observable molecular and clinical characteristics, which can make diagnosis difficult and which his research is seeking to address.
