By |2019-04-24T14:44:13-04:00Apr 24, 2019|Keeping You Informed, Research|

A conversation with David L. Nelson, Ph.D., a Professor at Baylor College of Medicine and a member of the NFXF Scientific Advisory Council. He is a co-discoverer of the FMR1 gene and the repeat expansion mutation that causes fragile X syndrome. He is answering questions about a recent study published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry and an accompanying press release about the paper from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. The headline of the press release claims, "New Fragile X Genes Discovered."
