Over the years and thanks to the support of our community, we’ve been able to grow the number of clinicians and researchers focusing on advancing our understanding and treatment of HHT.
We’re excited to announce another major step forward in that fight! Dr. Edda Spiekerkoetter and her scientific colleagues at the Stanford HHT Center of Excellence were recently awarded a $2.8 million (yes, you read that right!) NIH/ NHLBI grant focused on the understanding and targeting of molecular and cellular events responsible for the development, growth, and regression of pulmonary AVMs. Congratulations to Dr. Spiekerkoetter and the co-investigators Serena Tan, MD (Assistant Professor, Pathology), Joyce Teng, MD (Professor, Pediatric Dermatology), Jayakar Nayak, MD, PhD (Associate Professor Otolaryngology), Peter Hwang, MD (Professor and Chief of Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery), David Stevenson (Medical Genetics), Gary Steinberg (Neurosurgery), Joseph Wu (Cardiology), Marlene Rabinovitch (Pediatric Cardiology), Karin Tran-Lundmark (Pediatric Cardiology, Lund, Sweden) and Paul Yu (Cardiology, Harvard).
