Each year on the recommendation of the Scientific/Medical Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors, PSC Partners Seeking a Cure chooses the most promising research projects to support. In 2013, Dr. Eva Ellinhaus and Dr. Andre Franke of Christian-Albrechts-University received a two-year $60,000 grant to sequence the genomes of 64 unrelated PSC patients looking for rare and low frequency coding variants that might be more prevalent in the PSC population. Read the final report from Dr. Ellinghaus and her team. You can also read the original Lay Summary of her research proposal on our research grants page.
PSC Partners Seeking a Cure thanks and commends Dr. Ellinghaus and her team for advancing the frontiers of PSC research.
