CU Faces of Hope-Genetics of Craniofacial and Dental Development Research Study

This Study is
No Longer Enrolling


This study plans to collect samples to create a database of patients with various syndromes that affect the way bones of the face are formed, termed “craniofacial”. These samples will support a new research program, named CU Faces of Hope, which involves a team of researchers and doctors who will work together toward a goal of better understanding facial development and gain knowledge about your specific syndrome. Samples, such as blood, DNA, and cells, will be stored for future approved research. The reason for collecting both health information and blood/tooth samples from the same person is to look at relationships between physical symptoms, behavior, genes, and parts of the blood. We are also asking parents and siblings of people with these various craniofacial associated syndromes to join the study. Having information available from family members can help researchers look at differences between people who have a syndrome and those who do not.
