The National Brain Gene Registry is a highly collaborative initiative. We aim to better understand the impact of rare gene variants in intellectual and developmental disabilities, with the vision of improving the lives of individuals and families touched by these conditions. We invite researchers, patients and families to join us in this ambitious endeavor.

Led by investigators at Washington University in St. Louis, Harvard Medical School/Boston Children’s Hospital, and the University of North Carolina, the National Brain Gene Registry is funded by the NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. Thirteen leading US research institutions are participating in this initiative, enrolling participants and contributing to this rich source of genotypic and phenotypic data.
