We are unique in the rare disease community
Tiffany Ferry, Founder and President of Lymphatic Malformation Institute
As the President of the Lymphatic Malformation Institute, we are proud to share the same vision with LGDA and LGDA Europe – to advance our basic understanding of the lymphatic system and advance our understanding of CLAs, including Generalized lymphatic anomaly (GLA)/Lymphangiomatosis, Gorham-Stout disease (GSD), Kaposiform lymphangiomatosis (KLA), and Central Conducting lymphatic anomaly (CCLA).
Most recently, LMI, LDGA, and LGDA Europe are supporting the Alfie Milne Young Investigator award which is open to researchers around the world. This $25,000 grant supports early career researchers, such as postdoctoral and clinical fellows or instructors, who are pursuing promising research ideas related to CLA’s(complex lymphatic anomalies). The award is made possible by a charitable donation from LGDA UK, highlighting the collaboration within our community.
