NF2 Sources

Last Updated: 07/17/17

Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2), is a condition many researchers over the years have dedicated considerable time to understand. Many sources of information hold conflicting data due to constant release of new data. NF2 Information and Services is on a mission to constantly look for new developments to help doctors and people with NF2 know what to discuss and ask before treatments.
