Exceptional care, groundbreaking research
The Washington University NF Center is focused on accelerating the pace of scientific discovery and its application to the care of individuals with NF.
St. Louis Children’s Hospital weekly podcast, Radio Rounds, is a free series for healthcare professionals featuring Washington University pediatric specialists. Listen as Stephanie Morris, MD, NF Center clinician and researcher, explains that while there is no cure for NF1, research throughout the world is providing hope that new treatments and management strategies will eventually transform the practice of medicine for people affected with NF1.
The laboratory of Dr. David Gutmann at the Washington University Neurofibromatosis (NF) Center welcomes Michelle Wegscheid as an MD/PhD trainee in the Neurosciences Program at Washington University. With her experience and skill set, she hopes to advance our understanding of brain development in individuals with NF1.
Club NF is a FREE program that gives school-aged children (grades K - 8) with NF1 the opportunity to experience therapeutic activities within the community setting. Please join us at our next Club NF event on Saturday, April 1st, at Art Unleashed for pottery making and instructional painting. The activities will target and promote development of fine motor skills, executive function skills and social skills, often delayed in children with NF1.
