2016 PXE Research Meeting

PXE International gathered over 50 researchers from around the world to discuss the latest and greatest of PXE research. Presentations of new data from labs across the globe shared exciting advancements and new avenues of research. The group left feeling invigorated and energized to continue pushing forward toward a treatment for PXE. We would like to thank our sponsors at the NIH (NCATS, NEI, and NIAMS) as well as Thomas Jefferson University for hosting the event.

PXE International Center of Excellence in Research and Clinical Care

PXE International is excited to announce the opening of the PXE International Center of Excellence in Research and Clinical Care at Jefferson. The Center was launched at the beginning of the 2016 PXE International Biennial Research Symposium: “Progress in Diagnostics, Research and Treatment” on September 15, 2016. The Center will provide a locus for pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) research and clinical care. PXE International, with Jefferson Medical College, will support the Center and its first lead scientist, Koen van de Wetering, who has been recruited from The Netherlands. Dr. v.d. Wetering has been instrumental in a number of important basic science and preclinical discoveries for PXE.
