Solving Medical Mysteries
Through Team Science

Finding Answers through Sharing

We are always looking for new participants that can help us better understand the medical mysteries plaguing us today. Here, you can learn more about some of our past participants and help us find and connect with others with the same or similar conditions.

If you or someone you know has any of the symptoms or genetic changes listed in these profiles, please contact us.

Each of these pages includes details about our participants. We respect the privacy of all our participants, and sharing information on our site is not a requirement to participate in the study. Only participants who have given us their consent will have information posted to our site. While these participant pages are helpful to understand our participants’ stories, they do not begin to describe their diagnostic odysseys. A special thank you goes out to our participants and their families for sharing their experiences.
