General Information
The Rothberg Institute For Childhood Diseases is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for children suffering from Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). We operate at the intersection of molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, and nanotechnology.

Research Activities
Our modern understanding of cancer comes from animal models of TSC, and the first description of autism comes from a TSC patient. Work done on TSC will have a direct impact on cancer research and can also form a basis for understanding and treating other childhood disorders. TSC is a genetic disorder that leads to benign tumors in multiple organs, including the brain, kidneys, heart, eyes, lungs and other organs. During the first few years, the severity of TSC can range from mild skin abnormalities to, in severe cases, seizures, mental retardation, renal failure, or the need for a lung transplant in young women with TSC.
