Johns Hopkins – Lysosomal Storage Disease Center600 N. Wolfe Street
Baltimore, Maryland, United States
Lysosomes are packets of enzymes or other compounds found within a cell. These structures act as shuttles in the cell, bringing materials back and forth between the cell’s outer covering and within the cell, as well as between other structures inside the cell. When lysosomes do not work properly, compounds get stuck inside the lysosomes. This causes certain conditions and diseases.
Our team of experts at Johns Hopkins works to accurately diagnose these conditions and provide treatment plans tailored to your needs.
