It has been very rewarding to see the 15q13.3 community grow and expand to continue bringing awareness and resources to 15q13.3 families, and we are honoured to be working with you in research, clinical care, and advocacy efforts.

What is a 15q13.3 deletion?
It's a chromosomal change in which a small piece of chromosome 15 is missing in each cell. The deletion occurs on the long (q) arm of the chromosome at a
position designated q13.3.
We had a great opportunity to present our work on 15q13.3 deletions at the World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics. Stay tunned for the publication.
