The Vanderver Laboratory’s basic science and clinical research projects are inextricably linked to the disease phenotypes encountered in the clinical setting, which is why the advancement of our research depends entirely on the participation of individuals and families worldwide who have been affected by leukodystrophies or other white matter disorders.

By contributing clinical data, radiology images, and blood samples, the 2,000+ individuals who have participated in our various research studies have allowed us to compile one of the world’s largest and most diverse leukodystrophy biorepositories, which in turn has spurred the launch of disease-specific natural history studies and therapeutic trials.
