Funding for research into Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). A primary objective of the Foundation’s Research Program is to elevate LAM science to levels that are competitive for more substantial funding from federal sources.
Examples of competitive LAM proposals include those that focus on the genetic regulation of smooth muscle growth or the development of a smooth muscle cell line that is representative of the LAM lesion. Mechanistic, hypotheses-driven approaches of all types are welcomed. Formalin-fixed LAM tissues, dispersed LAM lung cells, genetic probes and other reagents are available.
