A message from the Chair of the SSBP

Welcome to the website of the Society for the Study of Behavioural Phenotypes (SSBP). The SSBP believes that progress in understanding the behavioural features associated with often complex genetic conditions is best served by providing a focus and point of contact for medical researchers and health care professionals working with those whose lives are affected by these conditions.


On our website and the linked SSBP Conference website you will find information about a wide range of syndromes and about the activities of the SSBP including our annual international research symposium, with its associated Education Days reaching out to the wider community of patients and their families.
