Join our patient registries to advance research!
In order to improve care and develop treatments, clinicians and researchers need to have a better understanding of Malan syndrome. Natural history studies collect real-world data that is essential for research and understanding how a disease develops over the course of a lifetime.
Our mission is to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by Malan syndrome in the global community through support, outreach and research.
