Sabeeha is a PhD student interested in the role of cell adhesion and cytoskeleton dynamics in the pathogenesis of the Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD).

Most subtypes are caused by mutations in genes affecting the structure or processing of the extracellular matrix (ECM) protein collagen. The Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSDs)...
The Beighton Score (BS) is a set of manoeuvres in a nine-point scoring system, used as the standard method of assessment for Generalised Joint Hypermobility (GJH). It was originally developed as an epidemiological tool used in screening large populations for GJH, but later adopted as a clinical tool for diagnostic purposes. Its ability to truly ref...
