About this study

The researchers are trying to identify molecular mechanisms that control growth plate mediated limb growth and identify agents that can be used to enhance or slow growth.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
