Niemann-Pick Disease Research News
Here are several updates regarding Niemann-Pick Disease research:
Sandra Cowie, OT, Director-at-Large for the NNPDF, attended the 2011 WORLD Symposium in February. She reports that there were five sessions dealing with Niemann-Pick Disease (four on NPC and one on ASMD), and a poster presentations display area.
Ian Williams, Ph.D., attended the renowned Gordon Research Conference on lysosomal diseases. Dr. Williams is one of our NNPDF-funded postdoctoral fellows working on a research project titled Neurobiology of Purkinje Cells in NPC1.
We also have available a text document of the NPC updates presented during the May 2nd conference call/Webinar. Anyone who was not able to participate in the meeting, and those who would like to review the information presented, may want to access the PDF of that document. A recording of the meeting is also available for a limited time.
Please visit the NNPDF's Latest Research page for links to all the reports and resources mentioned above.
Thank you, Sandy and Drs. Williams, Ory, Porter, Patterson and Austin, for participating in these important updates for our families!
