We are reaching out to persons with congenital facial paralysis (paralysis present at birth) and families of children with this condition.

Dr. Bryn Webb of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is now enrolling patients for the second phase of her long-term research project on the genetics of facial paralysis.

This is an important project, as there is so much still to be understood about this rare condition. Hopefully this project will lead to more accurate diagnosis, and eventually better treatment options. If you are interested in taking part in this research, which can be done from the comfort of your home and will include completion of a medical survey, then please contact Dr. Webb via email at: bryn.webb@mssm.edu.

Please click on this link to read more about Dr. Webb and her research:
