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.
