Progress in LAM research

Totally funded by LARA, Dr Patrick Ho Yin Ng completed his PhD researching Cellular Characteristics of Lymphangioleiomyomatosis at Sydney’s Woolcock Institute of Medical Research in December 2013  

The Woolcock team has published findings about a protein identified as missing in LAM and labelled LAMstatin.  Funds raised  by LARA assisted the research.  A/Prof Janette Burgess of the Woolcock Institute is studying the extracellular matrix in collaboration with LAM researchers worldwide.
