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. The study and registry allow the physicians involved in the Connective Tissue Clinic to work together to answer important questions that will help improve the care of patients with connective tissue diseases, not only in Arkansas but also around the world.
