Clemson faculty have been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the use of 3D imaging that could allow for quicker diagnosis of children with Phelan-McDermid syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes intellectual and physical disabilities. Due to the rarity of the syndrome, diagnosis is difficult and can have families waiting months or years for conclusive answers. Researchers hope their work will speed up diagnosis.
