Dr. Gabriel Haller
, post-doc geneticist at Washington University
in St. Louis, describes some of the work his lab has done to identify genetic risk factors for Chiari malformation
type I and syringomyelia
This work is the result of a multi-center, collaborative study with Washington University, University of Utah, Duke University, and University Hospital Vall d'Hebron (Barcelona, Spain) and included almost 400 patients and relatives to identify genes and genetic mutations that may indicate an increased risk of Chiari malformation in families.
