Finding a cure

Led by the University of Washington Medicine Neurosciences Institute, a team of medical geneticists is researching the Notch3 gene to learn how mutations in Notch3 lead to stroke and dementia. Their approach uses gene sequencers and a cutting-edge technique called variant interpretation. This technique enables them to analyze gene mutations and assess the impact of those mutations faster than ever before.
