Dr. Enns is a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Medical Genetics and has been Director of the Biochemical Genetics Program at Stanford University since 1998. He was trained in clinical genetics and clinical biochemical genetics at the University of California, San Francisco, graduating from the program in 1998. As a clinician, he cares for patients who have a broad range of genetic and metabolic conditions and focuses on diagnosing and managing those who have mitochondrial disorders, lysosomal storage disorders, congenital disorders of glycosylation, and other inborn errors of metabolism.
His research involves the development of a panel of sensitive blood biomarkers of redox imbalance, using tandem mass spectrometry and Hi-D FACS, so that patients who have primary or secondary mitochondrial dysfunction can be detected and monitored non-invasively. He is most interested in developing and running therapeutic clinical trials for patients with inborn errors of metabolism.
