Connective Tissue Research

Arkansas Children's has been recognized by the National Marfan Foundation and is One of Only 10 Centers in the Nation Recognized for Treatment of Williams Syndrome.

In addition to providing the highest level of care for our patients, Arkansas Children's is also actively involved in ongoing clinical and translational research endeavors to improve the care and outcomes of patients with connective tissue diseases via the Arteriopathy-Associated Connective Tissue Diseases Study and Registry. El estudio y registro permite a los médicos de la Clínica de Tejido Conectivo trabajar juntos para responder preguntas importantes que ayudarán a mejorar la atención de los pacientes con enfermedades del tejido conectivo, no solo en Arkansas, sino también en todo el mundo.
