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.
