Newborn Screening Information


The National Newborn Screening and Global Resource Center (NNSGRC) serves as an independent U.S. national resource center for newborn screening and provides newborn screening information globally. It serves as the only non-federally funded comprehensive source of newborn screening information. Its director is currently affiliated with the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) in an adjunct capacity. The NNSGRC was originally founded under a cooperative agreement with the US Health Resources and Services Administration in 1999, but became an independent project January 1, 2013.

Originally created as a federal focal point for national newborn screening and genetics activities in the US, the NNSGRC is dedicated to providing accurate and timely newborn screening resource information both nationally and globally. In addition to providing independent consultative services, program reviews, selected national data, and hosting a respected international discussion listserv, the NNSGRC provides information and related resources to benefit national and international newborn screening stakeholders, which include:

  • Health Professionals
