Clinical Trials # (

The purpose of the Washington University Wolfram Syndrome Research Clinic is to better understand the development and progression of the neurological aspects of Wolfram syndrome. During annual research visits patients are seen by specialists in multiple disciplines (ophthalmology, neurology, psychiatry, audiology) and undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain.  These data help us understand the neurological issues in Wolfram Syndrome, and will directly inform the design and metrics used in future clinical trials.
