22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome


Montefiore-Einstein researchers work with the National Institutes of Health on 22q11.2DS to further understand the characteristics of the syndrome. Ongoing studies look into the cause of heart defects, hearing loss and psychiatric disturbance in individuals carrying the deletion.

Geneticists also look at the cause of the deletion as well as family inheritance from parent to offspring. Some of our scientists are also participating in the International Brain and Behavior Consortium that is investigating schizophrenic illness in patients with the 22q11.2 deletion.
