Esther Maina

Esther is a Medical and Molecular Geneticist from Kenya.

Esther spent part of her postdoctoral experience working in the UK on the molecular genetics of PWS. Upon returning home to Kenya, she found that there were no documented cases of confirmed PWS cases in Kenya or even in the greater East African region. To that end she decided to approach Kenyan pediatricians with a questionnaire on the diagnosis of a PWS baby and the management therein. Since then her work and contacts in the PWS community have further developed.
