Welcome to the University of Washington Hindbrain Malformation Research Program website.

We study the biology of hindbrain malformations and neurodevelopmental disorders such as Joubert syndrome, rhombencephalosynapsis, pontine tegmental cap dysplasia, and Chudley-McCullough syndrome to advance our understanding of brain development and improve the lives of families affected by these conditions. Identifying the causes of these disorders will provide better diagnostic and prognostic information to families and, we hope, lead to better treatments in the future. Please contact us for more information or to participate in our research.

Assist our research with your prenatal pregnancy imaging

As part of our ongoing research studies, we are trying to improve prenatal diagnosis of Joubert syndrome. We intend to compare imaging studies (ultrasound and fetal MRI) from pregnancies affected by Joubert syndrome and pregnancies unaffected by Joubert syndrome to identify the most accurate imaging features for diagnosis. If you have had prenatal imaging of affected or unaffected pregnancies and would like to participate, please contact us at (206) 616-3788 or joubert@uw.edu. Thank you!
