Memories of the Moore Clinic, 1960-1965
© Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2012. All rights are reserved. Beginning in the 1950s, Victor McKusick established the Moore Clinic as the leading international centre for the development of the new specialty of clinical genetics. Many of those who worked with him at this time were to become leaders in this field, both in the USA and in many other countries. Because McKusick remained firmly embedded in general internal medicine, he was able to bring a wide variety of different fields of research into the development of this new specialty. This short appreciation to the work of McKusick is based on reminiscences of the activities of the Moore Clinic in the early 1960s.
