UC San Francisco, Massachusetts General Hospital, Univ. of Florida, Yale, and Rutgers collaborate on groundbreaking TS research announced May 3, 2017
New Jersey leads research to identify Tourette genes.
"Our partnership with Rutgers has resulted in the identification of key genes contributing to Tourette Syndrome, leading the way to a better understanding of this complex disorder," said Faith Rice, Executive Director of NJCTS. "New Jersey families' participation in the 2008 initial pilot led to establishing 26 National Institutes of Health collection sites around the world and to this expanded research. Because of their participation, we are closer than ever to understanding Tourette Syndrome."
