Rush University is conducting a research study to validate a rating scale created to assess the motor symptoms of people with FXTAS – the “Fragile X-Associated Tremor Ataxia Syndrome Rating Scale (FXTAS-RS)”
Drs. Craig Erickson and Lauren Schmitt at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital are conducting a series of research studies to learn about the brain and cognition and how they are connected with genetic factors related to FXS.
UNC Chapel Hill is conducting a research study to learn about the early brain and behavioral development of infants with FXS to aid in the future development of better supports and treatments.
A longitudinal research study from The Wilkinson Lab at the Boston Children’s Hospital Labs of Cognitive Neuroscience to learn about how differences in brain activity affect learning, language, and behavior in Fragile X Syndrome.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of ZYN002, a clear gel that can be applied to the skin (called transdermal application) twice a day for the treatment of behavioral symptoms of Fragile X syndrome (FXS).
Purdue University is conducting a research study to learn about how genetic, biological, nutritional, and environmental information relates to health and development in Fragile X syndrome.
The Spatial Development Lab at Montclair State University is conducting a research study to learn about spatial abilities, such as why we sometimes get lost in the environment.
The Development in Neurogenetic Disorders Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is conducting a research study to learn about what skills support early language development.
Parents or caregivers of individuals with Fragile X syndrome who has received services via telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic may be eligible to participate.
NFXF has partnered with an advisory committee of international fragile X professionals to create an international fragile X premutation research registry. Find out how to participate.
RTI International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are conducting an early intervention study to learn about the best ways to support early development in infants identified with the full mutation of Fragile X. Babies 0–9 months old with the full mutation, and their caregivers, may be eligible to participate.
Our Fragile X World collects data from families using online surveys and in-person studies. Topics covered include sensory or behavioral challenges, health care experiences, and the impact of Fragile X on families.
The MIND Group at the University of Minnesota is conducting a survey for parents of children with Fragile X syndrome to learn about how genetic and neurodevelopmental differences impact behavioral strengths and challenges. Parents of 3–17 year old children living with Fragile X are eligible to participate.
