Born out of decades of research and data collection,
London Medical Databases (LMD) is the most comprehensive resource for photos and information about syndromes, genes and clinical phenotypes.

Accessible exclusively through FDNA’s Face2Gene LIBRARY, and curated by genetics experts globally, LMD is the most up-to-date resource of its kind. Users can search for syndromes, genes and phenotypes to produce expert-reviewed content to support clinical evaluations, education and research.

About the London Medical Databases

London Medical Database (LMD) was cofounded by Dr. Michael Baraitser, formerly Consultant in Clinical Genetics at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, London, and Professor Robin Winter, formerly Professor of Clinical Dysmorphology and Clinical Genetics at the Institute of Child Health, London, and Honorary Consultant in Clinical Genetics at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, London.

“Robin Winter and I started working on the database more than 25 years ago and it was very important to him. There were times when the volume of work became a little too much and he would shrug his shoulders and say that it was an essential tool for our everyday clinical practice and that we should go on. He would say, ‘if other people liked using it, so much the better.’ In honour of Robin’s work, the London Dysmorphology and Neurogenetics databases have been renamed the Winter-Baraitser Dysmorphology Database (WBDD) and the Baraitser-Winter Neurogenetics Database (BWND). I hope this will be a fitting memorial to the best dysmorphologist that I ever encountered.”

  • Dr. Michael Baraitser, LMD Author

In 2016, London Medical Database (LMD) was integrated exclusively into the Face2Gene LIBRARY, joining the Face2Gene Suite of apps. With a new, lower price to make the resource more accessible, the new LMD is accessible from any device in Face2Gene LIBRARY – with updated content, new search features and a community platform that allows the genetics community to curate content.

Dr. LMD Team is working with genetics experts worldwide to keep LMD the most up-to-date and advanced resource of its kind. You may contact Dr. Basel with any questions or ideas.

All three expert databases are included in one.

  • Winter-Baraitser Dysmorphology Database (WBDD)
  • Baraitser-Winter Neurogenetics Database (BWDB)
  • London Ophthalmic Genetics Database (GENEEYE)

A tremendous thank you to Dr. Winter and Dr. Baraitser for their decades-long efforts in developing this resource, and for now ensuring its legacy continues through uniting with Face2Gene.

Face2Gene User Community Includes Users From:

  • Using Face2Gene to reference all my department’s cases, share information with my colleagues and quickly look up relevant information in the London Medical Databases Online saves me hours of work every week and allows me to focus on my patients.

    Dr. Ibrahim Akalin

    Assoc. Prof. Ibrahim Akalin, MD, Medical Geneticist from the Istanbul Medeniyet University, Istanbul, Turkey

  • FDNA’s game-changing technology introduces an objective computer-aided dimension to the “art of dysmorphology”, transforming the analysis into an evidence-based science.

    Dr. Michael R. Hayden

    Chairman of FDNA’s Scientific Advisory Board & Steering Committee and Editor in Chief of Clinical Genetics

  • FDNA is developing technology that has the potential to help so many physicians and families by bringing them closer to a diagnosis- there are literally millions of individuals with unusual features around the world that lack a diagnosis and therefore lack information on natural history, recurrence risk and prevention of known complications.

    Dr. Judith G. Hall

    Professor Emerita of Pediatrics & Medical Genetics UBC & Children's and Women's Health Centre of BC

  • FDNA has been “right on the money”, providing me with relevant, accurate and insightful information for differential diagnoses.

    Dr. Cynthia J.R. Curry

    Professor of Pediatrics UCSF, Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics Stanford

  • I am excited to be a part of the FDNA community, promoting broad information sharing with my peers to amplify the scientific and clinical value of our community’s accumulated knowledge for the purpose of efficiently diagnosing individuals with rare genetic disorders.

    Dr. Karen W. Gripp

    Chief, Division of Medical Genetics A.I. duPont Hospital for Children

  • FDNA's idea of incorporating several dysmorphology resources (OMIM, GeneReviews), supported by their visual analytic technology, will be able to improve researching of genetic syndromes - all within a single mobile app.

    Dr. Chad Haldeman-Englert

    Assistant Professor Pediatrics at Mission Fullerton Genetics

  • Given the advancement of visual analytical technology, it’s about time Dysmorphology is supported with computational capabilities and moving this to mobile support, is simply the next logical step.

    Dr. Chanika Phornphutkul

    Associate Professor of Pediatrics Director, Division of Human Genetics Department of Pediatrics Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University

  • Having an archive of cases easily accessible from my mobile device anytime and anywhere is a long-time unmet need.

    Dr. Lynne Bird

    Rady Children's Specialists of San Diego

  • FDNA's solution is a huge leap forward for dysmorphology. It saves me significant time when I’m evaluating patients in my clinic and provides me with insightful tools that help me generate a differential diagnosis.

    Dr. David A. Chitayat

    Head of the Prenatal Diagnosis and Medical Genetics Program at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto

  • Shortly after learning about Face2Gene, I’ve started to incorporate this amazing tool into my workflow. Soon enough, Face2Gene’s analysis flushed out references that I would not have considered for several of my patients, which turned out to be their correct diagnosis

    Dr. Zvi U. Borochowitz

    Chairman (Retired) of The Simon Winter Institute for Human Genetics at Bnai-Zion Medical Center, Technion-Rappaport Faculty of Medicine

  • The Unknown Forum from Face2Gene is a great community platform for exchanging opinions regarding undiagnosed cases. It is straightforward to use and safe for exchange of medical data, thanks to the efforts of its developers and to the involvement of geneticists worldwide.
