It's so rewarding seeing our research dollars turning into research breakthroughs!


In 2010, LE&RN awarded a research fellowship to Guy Malkinson, Ph.D. in the lab of Dr. Karina Yaniv at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Last week, this team reported a major discovery in deciphering how the lymphatic system arises, forms, and develops. For over one hundred years, scientists have debated the question of the origins of the lymphatic system. Last week, Dr. Yaniv and her colleagues revealed how the lymphatic system develops in the embryo and for the first time managed to grow lymphatic cells in the lab!

"This work represents a major breakthrough in our understanding of lymphatic formation... with enormous implications," says Dr. Yaniv. "I would like to express my gratitude to LE&RN for the support received, which allowed us to carry out this important work."
