Goal of International Scientific Advisory Council (SAC)

Target of the International Scientific Advisory Council (SAC)

We are eager to support and share!

Knowledge and expertise from all over the world taken together in one group.  SAC stands for up-to-date information, available to as many people as possible. Experts on variable topics within Cornelia de Lange Syndrome work together to share interdisciplinary knowledge.

Sharing our information we do through publications in (international, peer-reviewd) journals, the CdLS-world website, newsletters of members and associates of the federation and by organizing symposia and congresses together with the CdLS-world federation.

A lot of information on different topics, collected and constructed in collaboration with parents, professionals and other involved persons, is already available on this website.
Can’t you find the right information or doesn’t the information provide the answer to your question(s)?

Go to Ask the Expert, write down your question and we will as soon and good as possible give a response
