LADDER Database Family-friendly Reports
LADDER shares de-identified information (which means it cannot be traced back to you or your family) from the LADDER database with approved researchers. When research projects using LADDER data result in publications, we share summaries of the research that are written for families to understand.
The following research was conducted with information obtained through LADDER.
Behavioral Characterization of Dup15q Syndrome
Charlotte DiStefano, PhD, Center for Autism Research and Treatment, UCLA
How You Can Help:
Family members of individuals with dup15q syndrome are important allies in the road to developing treatments for these conditions and, in many cases, families have already contributed data elsewhere. LADDER Learning Network and LADDER Database maximizes those contributions by combining those data into a centralized platform, which streamlines research efforts focused on answering important questions about dup15q.
