FOP Biobank Launches at Family Gathering, Now Available for All to Participate
FOP researchers use biosamples (blood, urine, saliva, or “baby teeth”) to make new discoveries in FOP, to test new drugs, and to look for new markers of disease (called biomarkers). However, a lack of freely available samples poses a challenge to advance FOP research. People with FOP and anyone that supports FOP research can overcome this challenge, and help advance new research, by donating biosamples to the IFOPA's newly launched FOP Biobank. Your de-identified samples will be shared with researchers across the world who are working to help FOP patients.
