FOP Friends lab visit
2 November 2022
The Bullock group was delighted to welcome the FOP Friends charity and patient families to the CMD in October. FOP (fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva) is a congenital syndrome of extraskeletal bone formation caused by a gain of function mutation in the ACVR1/ALK2 protein kinase. Families were given a lab tour and updated on the latest research news, including progress of the “STOPFOP” clinical trial developed by the Bullock group and collaborators.
