Natural History of Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxians
This is a research study about the way your neurological disease changes over time (every 6 months) and the effect some of your genetic make-up could be having on this disease.  Participants must have a documented DNA diagnosis for SCA 1,2,3, or 6.  The current Coordinator, Joe Winer, is leaving UCSF to go to graduate school.
