These aims will be achieved by:
- The creation of a European network of existing centres of expertise in dysmorphology.
- Development of a web-based dysmorphology diagnostic system (DDS)
- Development and wide dissemination of clinical management guidelines for selected dysmorphic conditions.
The project is a partnership between six existing centres of expertise in dysmorphology from; Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland and the UK. The University of Manchester is the coordinating partner for the project. The UK team is lead by Professor Jill Clayton-Smith from the Manchester Regional Genetic Service, and the project support team is based at Nowgen - A Centre for Genetics in Healthcare.
We are sorry but DYSCERNE is unable to provide advice to, or accept referrals directly from patients or their families. Instead, please contact your local family doctor or Genetics Service.
