The Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s is committed to patient care, education and research. Research holds the key to improving outcomes. For example, it may provide an opportunity for individuals to learn more about themselves and their medical conditions. Research can also help others in the future, and many children and adults who participate in studies feel good about the time they spent in a study. In our research program, we also try to teach brain science to research participants and let them know how important their contribution has been.
Persons who participate in research need not be severely affected by a medical condition. Sometimes, it is important to involve individuals with mild symptoms. Sometimes unaffected individuals may also participate.
At Cincinnati Children’s we do unique research and we also participate in research with other major research centers. Our research on tics and Tourette syndrome involves a number of unanswered questions:
We are members of the Tourette Syndrome Study Group and Tourette Syndrome Clinical Trials Consortium. Gilbert is also a member of the Tourette Syndrome Association-USA Medical Advisory Board. TSA-USA funds research into causes and better treatments for Tourette syndrome. For more information on research, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
