Natural History of Williams Syndrome and other Chromosome 7q11 Variants

The Williams syndrome deletion on chromosome 7q11 includes 27 genes, but the effect of the deletion of most of these genes is not understood.

Scientific discovery holds much promise:

  • Deepen our understanding of the roles of multiple genes underlying Williams syndrome
  • Accelerate translational research in novel diagnostics and therapeutics for Williams syndrome
  • Enable the detailed study of individuals with Williams syndrome throughout the lifespan.
