Research

improving quality of life.

Researchers around the world are working hard to understand the complexities of Prader-Willi syndrome and develop medical and therapeutic interventions that improve the quality of life of the individual with PWS and those around him.

Prader-Willi California Foundation looks for every opportunity to support PWS research and we encourage families to participate in PWS research studies as well. Join the GLOBAL PWS REGISTRY so that researchers around the world have access to a database on information about PWS.
