In 1993, a team led by Emory University’s Stephen Warren discovered the gene that is the root cause for Fragile X Syndrome. Stephen Warren and certified medical illustrator Michael Konomos team up to tell the story of Fragile X, from the discovery of the gene to what we understand today. Through the use of realistic, accurate, and visually stunning animations, you will journey from the gene to the brain where the ultimate effects are most profoundly felt. This modern teaching tool was designed to engage medical students with the molecular world in a way that gives them a better appreciation for how the smallest parts of our body actually work, and inspire them to continue the investigations into Fragile X Syndrome until there is a cure. Families and friends of those affected by Fragile X may also benefit from this book.
