The Gleeson lab is seeking patients in order to find the genetic causes underlying these conditions. We are interested in identifying new genes involved in the development of the brain, and we then carry out research to further understand the functional role of these genes during development. If you and your family wish to participate, please visit our website http://cbd.ucsd.edu, or kindly contact our clinical study coordinator. Additionally, if you are located near the San Diego area, we can arrange a blood draw at Rady Children's Hospital free of charge. The study has IRB approval.
