February is Marfan & Related Disorders Awareness Month!
Through February, let's get involved to help raise awareness of Marfan syndrome (MFS) and the related genetic aortic disorders.
Over three decades of research on Marfan syndrome, has improved our knowledge of the disorder and opened avenues to the discovery of many related, life-threatening genetic aortic disorders.
Research & knowledge of MFS are crucial for the research of all other related genetic aortic disorders. GADA Canada continues to support research of MFS and the related genetic aortic disorders through its Research Award Program and the Montalcino Aortic Consortium
