Organ & Tissue Donation

The advancement of scientific discoveries towards treatments and a cure for Rett syndrome (RTT) depend on the ability of researchers to study how mutations in the MECP2 gene affect growth and development. You can help with this research by donating a sample of your child’s blood or tissue if she is having a routine blood draw or undergoing a medical or surgical procedure (e.g., skin or muscle biopsy, endoscopy, scoliosis surgery). A known MECP2 mutation and completion of a clinical questionnaire is required for this research.
