Phase 1

In Phase 1 of the Simons VIP study, eligible families provided medical and family history information by phone, underwent genetic testing(if necessary), and traveled to one (or more) of five different sites for in-person clinical evaluation. These clinical evaluations included 2-3 days of medical and behavioral assessments, MRI of the brain, an optional skin biopsy, and neuropsychological and cognitive testing.
