2nd NIH Grant awarded to FPWR funded researcher Yong-Hui Jiang

FPWR funds often help investigators develop a new line of research, obtaining the preliminary results needed to compete for larger, multi-year grants from the NIH and other organizations. Many of our researchers have been awarded these larger grants as a result of FPWR’s seed investment and support. Investigator: Yong-Hui Jiang FPWR Grant: Preclinical studies of a […]

Induced pluripotent (iPS) cells

FPWR supported the creation of the first iPS cells from individuals with PWS, establishing a critical resource for the PWS research community.  This valuable resource will will help researchers determine how PWS cells are different from typical cells, and will provide a platform to test small molecules, existing drugs, new drugs, genes, etc as potential therapies. This […]

PWS Resource Development

FPWR recognizes that supplying researchers with the tools to conduct their studies is critical for accelerating progress, and thus, we have invested in the development of several models of PWS.   PWS Induced Pluripotent (iPS) cells FPWR supported the creation of the first PWS iPS cells which will allow us to determine how PWS cells […]
