Fragile X Research

We are now enrolling participants in both NIH-funded FX Center groups in our "Modifiers of Fragile X-Associated Disorders (FX-MOD) study." The goal of this study is to discover factors that affect the risk and severity of three fragile X-associated disorders: FXTAS, FXPOI, and seizures in individuals with FXS using patient recruitment with a focus on clinical and translational research.
