The Utah Program for Inherited Neuromuscular Disorders (UPIN) maintains a unique relationship with both the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Utah and the Primary Children’s Hospital. This collaboration allows our clinical staff, faculty, and investigators to pursue productive clinical and research initiative that seek to maintain innovative healthcare standards. Our shared value of putting “the child first and always” unites our institutional efforts to meet critical gaps in patient care by providing access to clinical trials and observational studies conducted right here at UPIN.

The group is directed by Neurologist and Neuromuscular specialist Dr. Russell Butterfield. He and the UPIN team are supported by esteemed Geneticist Dr. Bob Weiss and highly regarded Psychologist Dr. Missy Dixon. UPIN is a multidisciplinary team, providing services including social work, genetic counseling, physical therapy, nutrition, pulmonology, and respiratory therapy.
