CdLS Introduction  (Continued)

  


CdLS Introduction (Continued)

A thorough introduction to Cornelia de Lange Syndrome.
Our experts will introduce:

Genetic causes and molecular mechanisms in CdLS

To understand the reason why people get CdLS we will be introduced into the Genes and even more specific parts of the genes. What about a next child, will it also get CdLS?
Why can‘t we cure CdLS?
What will the future bring? As we understand more and more about the genes...

Meet our experts

We have done our best to invite those from around the world to give you the insights you hope for. Professors, teachers, experienced parents and siblings will discuss the topics for the best quality of life possible. Our motto; TOGETHER!
