A first step is taken at a national level to integrate the shared goals of those interested in Turner syndrome.
Turner Syndrome Research Network (TRN) is Formed
Summer 2014 marks an important moment for research involving Turner syndrome. Following the Turner Syndrome Annual Conference, a research symposium will address "Turner Syndrome Health and Wellness in the 21st Century: Crossroads of Health Care Research and Health Care Delivery." This symposium will bring together major stakeholders from the Turner syndrome community, including individuals with Turner syndrome and their families, clinicians and research scientists. These experts will develop a plan to integrate shared goals into a research and clinical program called the Turner Resource Network (TRN). The TRN will be the first step at a national level to develop a unified plan for advancing clinical care and research on Turner Syndrome. Dr. Angela Lin, Co-Director of the MGH Turner Syndrome Program, has been involved every step of the way. What exciting news!
