Fragile X Treatment Research Center At Vanderbilt

Dear Member of the Fragile X Community,

We are contacting you to let you know about a research program at Vanderbilt University. This program studies new treatments for individuals with Fragile X syndrome.

The purpose of the Fragile X Treatment Research Program is to find out if certain medications are helpful for people with Fragile X syndrome. These studies are based upon research findings in animals suggesting these medications may improve problem behaviors and learning in Fragile X syndrome. The research group is actively seeking adult, adolescent, and child participants with Fragile X syndrome. Please find some recruitment materials for your review.
