The Fragile X Treatment Research Program

Vanderbilt University medical Center


The Fragile X Treatment Research Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee is made up of a diverse group of researchers interested in developing better treatment options for Fragile X Syndrome, the most common inherited cause of intellectual disability and autism. Molecular research into the causes of Fragile X Syndrome has revealed exciting leads for potential treatments that may help with neurological, behavioral, or learning problems. We are now assessing some of these new treatments in children and adults with Fragile X Syndrome. In addition to evaluating new treatments, we aim to keep the local community informed about ongoing medical and scientific advances related to Fragile X Syndrome.

We are running several active treatment studies and are seeking potential participants, both male and female, 5 to 45 years of age with Fragile X Syndrome. Your decision about participation in research opportunities will not affect your care or access to care at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center or the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center. All study related care, including visits, evaluations, and study medications will be provided at no cost to you. Please see our research page for more information.
