New Fuchs' Dystrophy Genetic Findings from the FECD Study

New Fuchs' Dystrophy Genetic Findings from the FECD Study

Dear Bob,

We have great news.

Please see below the publication in Journal Nature Communications that just came out today. Links to the Article in Nature Communications, and the News release links from University of California San Diego as well as NIH that came out today are also below.
A very special thanks goes to you and to all of the Fuchs Friends for your support over the years. This publication is culmination of over 12 years of genetics study of Fuchs and would have not been possible without gracious participation of so many individuals with Fuchs and also control individuals. We are very thankful to every single person who participated in the study.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Natalie
