New research at the Patrick Wild Centre to study men who carry the fragile X premutation

Published May 2015

The Patrick Wild Centre is starting a new research project studying men who carry the fragile X premutation.  The study is open to recruitment now and more information about what it entails is available here.

For this study we need to recruit both people with the premutation and a comparison group of men who do not carry the premutation.  So any man between the ages of 18 and 70 can take part!

The study is funded by a research grant from the RS Macdonald Charitable Trust and through the Helen Maude Garfit Fund.
