The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome Sharing Repository

Research has revealed that Tourette Syndrome (TS) has a strong inherited component, and in recent years, the disorder has been linked to specific genes but these may account for only rare forms of TS.  

To further study along these lines, we have established a unique resource — in coordination with the National Institutes for Health—that makes blood cell and DNA samples available for qualified researchers around the world to study how genes cause Tourette Syndrome and other related problems.

The repository gathers information and samples from those who have TS and/or relatives of those with TS to make this research possible.
