Movement Disorder Genomic Study (MDGS)

Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions:
    Movement Disorders
  • Age: Between 2 - 110 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female
  • Other Inclusion Criteria:
    1. Male and female participants affected by a movement disorders or a neurodegenerative condition
    2. Participants with a clinical history and previous clinical assessments suggestive for a genetic condition but who don’t have a yet confirmed molecular diagnosis and whose diagnosis will be difficult to obtain outside of the study
    3. Participants whose previous genetic analyses showed positive findings which don’t fully explain their clinical presentation
    4. Those who would like to have their sequencing data reanalyzed as part of this study, along with additional studies if necessary
    5. OR:
    6. Non-affected blood family member of enrolled affected participants to serve as a comparison group for the genomic analysis with the potential to significantly increase the identification of causative genetic changes in the affected participant

You may not be eligible for this study if the following are true:

    1. Diagnosis of secondary (non-genetic) movement disorders or neurological conditions that rule out the possibility of a genetic diagnosis
