The Consortium will bring together independent research groups to work toward a common goal: solving the genetics of spina bifida.
The causes of spina bifida and other neural tube disorders encompass both genetic and environmental factors. Spina bifida is among the most common birth defects, but its primary mode of genetic inheritance and disease risk genes are not well understood. We hope to change that.
