Research Centers

Since the identification of the gene responsible for FOP in 2006, many research centers around the world have developed not only an interest in FOP, but research programs to better understand this debilitating disease. Like all of us, their ultimate goal is the development of treatments and, one day, a cure for FOP. We will be profiling these labs from around the world to share their important work with the FOP community.

Stay tuned for a brand new directory of academic research centers throughout the United States and around the world. If you represent an academic research center and want to do research in FOP, or if you'd like to be listed in our directory, please contact us
