The Clinical Registry Investigating Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (CRIBBS) reflects the time, energy, and vision of the BBS community, including patients, caregivers, families, and researchers, committed to improving the understanding of this complex disease. CRIBBS was designed to promote scientific efforts that touch the lives of and improve healthcare for individuals affected by BBS.

According to Bardet-Biedl Syndrome Family Association President Tim Ogden, "Building and maintaining CRIBBS is a top priority of the association. There's nothing we could do to have a greater impact on research and treatment development."
