Completed Research Studies

Our research has three main goals:

1) To better understand how to diagnose and treat the complications of Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS),

2) To develop better safe and non-invasive tools to diagnose and monitor disease progression

3) To improve our understanding of the underlying abnormalities in SWS (pathogenesis).

From the beginning, one of the purposes of the Center has been to bring the different experts together so that they can learn from each other, find new ways to collaborate, and develop both new research questions and new treatment strategies. Another mandate upon all members of the Center is to publish their clinical experience and research so that other patients and physicians can benefit from this work.
