Two Research Grants Awarded

Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome Foundation is proud to announce the awarding of two (2) grant proposals for funding this year. Recipients of these grants are Allison Bertuch, MD PhD, for her research titled "Why are Shwachman-Diamond syndrome cells hypersensitive to y-irradiation?" and Seth Corey, MD, for his proposal titled "Identification of cooperating genes in the transformation of SDS to MDS/ AML in the zebrafish model that phenocopies human SDS". Both of these grants are being supported by a donation from the Shwachman Diamond Project.
