Providing High-Quality Medical Care for Individuals with Dup15q Syndrome

We connect those who practice evidence-based medicine for Dup15q syndrome with a
high level of excellence and ensure as many families have access to it as possible.


Specialized Care

Each clinic is completely comprehensive yet has its own unique capabilities that leverage the expertise and specialized care available from each partnering organization. At the clinics, individuals have access to a variety of professionals all specializing in syndromes affecting the 15th chromosome:

  • Clinical geneticist
  • Neurologist
  • Psychiatrist
  • Psychologist
  • Speech Language Pathologist
  • Physical/Occupational Therapist
  • Genetic counselor
  • Social worker
  • Nutritionist

Dup15q Alliance does not directly provide or guide any clinical care or medical decision-making.


Dup15q Clinics also link providers together to share information about their most challenging cases, links patients to clinical trials and links all the data together—to pave the way for the cure.
