It may also be helpful to know that since 2010, we have invested $1.3 million in research. Some of our initial successes with these funds raised primarily by local organizations have resulted in:
• Accelerating a clinical trial by 3-4 years of hepatocycte liver transplantation in the first U.S. patient as the result of funding two fellows at the University of Pittsburgh
• Research towards the creation of the first human variant of a genetically engineered probiotic at the University of North Texas has been purchased by a biotech firm
• Leveraging NIH funding for gene therapy at Oregon Science and Health University
• Leveraging studies in the mouse model to translational studies in human PKU on skeletal fragility and have resulted in several publications in peer reviewed scientific journals of University of WI
