We perform natural history and clinical epidemiology studies designed to increase the understanding and improve the clinical management of these autosomal dominant conditions that predispose to tumour development and other problems.

Other Studies

Other interests include bone mineral density, content and strength in children and adults with NF1, whole body MRI and tumour volume, and clinical studies of tumour growth.
