Family Studies

Genetic Epidemiology Branch

The Genetic Epidemiology Branch (GEB) has been conducting family studies for more than three decades. Some families have been participating since the 1960's, and many have enrolled in more recent years. Families who participate usually come to the NIH Clinical Center for a clinical evaluation. GEB is actively recruiting families with specific constellations of disorders (see Active Clinical Studies).
