March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

LAM Science Research Update  +  Rapamycin: From Fruit Flies to Easter Island, and MILES To Go

Since its inception, The LAM Foundation has invested over $18 million in LAM research with one of the biggest breakthroughs resulting in a current treatment.  Progress and hope remain with The LAM Foundation’s current research portfolio of 15 active grants.  Join us as Dr. Vera Krymskaya, Scientific Director for The LAM Foundation gives us the roadmap for LAM research as we continue to move forward in our fight for a cure.

In addition, LAM specialist Dr. Rob Kotloff will be sharing about the journey to finding rapamycin/sirolimus as a treatment for LAM and will share up to date information on what we know about its management and effectiveness.  Whether you are a LAM patient currently on sirolimus or are wondering whether you should be, Dr. Kotloff’s expertise in explaining science in lay terms as well as his knowledge of treating women with LAM is an opportunity not to be missed.

Feel free to submit questions in advance by March 1st to: patientservices@thelamfoundation.org.
