Quote: “Dr Cherylea Browne from the MdDS Research Group at Western Sydney University became interested in MdDS after her own diagnosis of the condition and is now conducting research into the clinical features of MdDS. Her interests include the underlying hormonal aspects of MdDS and autonomic nervous system maladaptation in MdDS patients. The MdDS Research Group, though early in its formation, has generated interest from around the world, with collaborators contributing to research studies from Mt Sinai Hospital in New York, Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney and Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium.”
