Cerebral palsy database to be housed at UniAdelaide

A global research group that will investigate the genetic causes of cerebral palsy will be led by the University of Adelaide in South Australia.

The International Cerebral Palsy Genomics Consortium will include scientists from universities in Australia, Canada, China, Sweden, Turkey and the United States.

The researchers will pool data to set up the world’s first genomics database of cerebral palsy genetic mutations linked to clinical details. It will be based at UniAdelaide, where scientists have already built up a DNA biobank from families where cerebral palsy has occurred.
