The Role of Genetics

This project will outline a powerful methodology aimed at delivering important insights into the genetic causes of CP. He predicts that genetic defects collectively constitute a substantial proportion of all CP cases and that recent developments in genomic technology now offer an unprecedented opportunity to acquire a sophisticated understanding of the genetic causes of CP, and ultimately, reduce its impact and prevalence.
