Specialist Advisors to the Fragile X Society

 

We passionately believe in the importance of providing individuals and families living with Fragile X high-quality, evidence-based information. As such, our resources are peer-reviewed by our specialist advisors, who are experts in our field. In addition, our specilaist advisors support us with reviewing research studies, to determine whether we will support them through advertising participation opportunities to our members. 

 

All of our specialist advisors are professionals who have a long association with us; indeed many of our members know one or more of them if they have participated their research studies; or they may have heard them speak at our family conferences, or they may have read one or more of their research papers.
