Description

Summary

The main goal of this protocol is to develop a well-phenotyped genetic biobank to identify genetic variants associated with the heterogeneous clinical presentations of Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1). This will allow for improve understanding of NF1 pathogenesis and more personalized disease management. The investigators will conduct a GWAS analysis to identify common genetic risk variants associated with the development of cutaneous neurofibromas.
