Audrey Heimler MS '71 shared with us that in 1991, she wrote an article about an unidentified genetic syndrome, that has since been known as Heimler syndrome. Recently a geneticist identified the gene for Heimler syndrome. He was successful and this report was published in the American Journal of Human Genetics -- so now there is a Heimler syndrome and a gene for Heimler syndrome!
