University of Washington



University of Washington has established a collaborative partnership with multiple universities in the U.S., designating itself as a premier study site for visits. This strategic alliance brings together the research expertise of all institutions, fostering a dedicated environment for the investigation and understanding of CADASIL. Through joint efforts, University of Washington and the entire Consortium of sites aim to advance knowledge and contribute to the broader scientific community’s understanding of this rare and complex condition.
