In order to better understand the underlying causes of Kabuki syndrome and find new pathways and treatments, researchers are also conducting studies in their labs. Sample contribution is one of the best ways to support the research pipeline.
If you have a planned blood draw or procedure, please connect with a researcher who would greatly appreciate coordinating the collection of an “extra tube” or any tissue that would be “discarded.” During procedures, that precious sample is often thrown away. Email an institution today to make a difference.

Samples can be safely shipped within the country where they are collected. We look forward to expanding this list.
