Fragile X-Associated Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (FXPOI): For Researchers and Health Care Practitioners

Fragile X Syndrome Research Centers Program

The NICHD’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Branch funds three Fragile X Syndrome Research Centers. The centers are geared toward stimulating multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research and translating basic research findings into clinical practice.

NIH Research Plan on Fragile X Syndrome and Associated Disorders

In 2009, the NIH developed a research plan to advance the understanding of Fragile X syndrome and its associated conditions. The plan puts forward goals to guide future research, setting research priorities for each of the conditions. A major priority is to investigate the biological processes underlying all three disorders and how to better diagnose and treat them. Other priorities are studying the prevalence of the gene variations in the population and how the three conditions affect families.
