FG Syndrome Research

There are many scientists around the world working to further the understanding of the FG Syndrome. Some of these researchers are working hard to identify the gene or genes responsible for causing the all forms of the FG Syndrome phenotype, in hopes of someday making blood testing available to confirm clinical diagnoses and make prenatal and carrier diagnosis possible for all affected families. Other researchers are focused on developing a better understanding of the clinical, physical, and psychological manifestations of the FG Syndrome.

The following is a list of some of the these researchers. If you know of medical professionals who are actively pursuing work in the area of FG Syndrome, please let us know so that we can list them here. If you are a medical professional who would like to be added to this list, please contact us.
