2018 Marilyn R. Lindenauer Distinguished Speaker Series:

Cerebral Palsy and Genetics: Learning What we Don’t know

Cerebral palsy and genetics studies over the last few years have revealed that at least 30% of CP has a genetic basis. However, the suspicion is that even more CP cases have a genetic basis that we have not yet established.  Our interest is to develop projects that will allow us to identify these important genetic relationships.

The issues being discussed by the panel are cutting edge and will have important implications for patient care – “precision medicine” for CP. Those whose clinical or research interests revolve around childhood onset neurodevelopmental disorders will be fascinated by this discussion of the genetics of CP.

The panel will be moderated by David P. Roye, Jr., MD, Executive Director, Weinberg Family CP Center, Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

Reception to follow 6 -7 pm
