Exceptional care, groundbreaking research
The Washington University NF Center is focused on accelerating the pace of scientific discovery and its application to the care of individuals with NF.
Yuan Pan, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of David H. Gutmann, MD, PhD, has been awarded a grant from the McDonnell Center for Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology to continue her research on NF1-associated high-grade gliomas.
