Where Research and Medicine Meet


The Dysautonomia Center at NYU is a Center of Excellence for Research and Treatment in FD. Directed by Dr. Horacio Kaufmann, the Center provides medical support to families with FD across the globe. Our team of researchers, headed by Dr. Lucy N. Kaufmann, focus on understanding neural control in FD and how to improve medical care. We are currently conducting a number of clinical trials in patients with FD.
