Introducing the GenTAC Alliance

The GenTAC Alliance is a community of stakeholders committed to advancing our understanding of genetic thoracic aortic diseases and their treatment.

The Alliance builds upon the successes of the GenTAC Registry, which enrolled and followed participants from 2006 to 2016 and seeks to involve a much wider group of stakeholders and be more expansive in scope.

The goals of the GenTAC Alliance are to advance basic, translational and clinical research; educate and support patients, families, and clinicians; and coordinate, facilitate, and encourage the use of biospecimens and data across registries.

Upcoming GenTAC Webinar

Trice Cloud Based Imaging Platform Overview and Q&A - Click here to register!
Dr. Siddharth Prakash (Chair, Biospecimens and Data Working Group) will be hosting a webinar on Friday, April 3rd at 11am EST to explain Trice Imaging, a cloud-based platform that allows physicians to securely upload and share images/videos on collaborative research projects. The software can also overlay measurements that generate output for direct multimodality comparisons and specialized analysis. Dr. Prakash will provide an overview and Q&A to discuss Trice's capabilities and gauge the interest of the entire GenTAC Alliance in potential research applications.
