Hereditary Endocrine Cancer: A Model Based On Phaeochromocytoma – Paraganglioma Syndromes
Grant number: 1108032 | Funding period: 2016 - 2018
Phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas are tumours remarkable for their very high heritability. They have a high burden of disease themselves, and their associated hereditary syndromes include risks for other malignancies. Our study will rationalize the pathological approach to diagnosing these hereditary syndromes, find new therapeutic targets for metastatic disease, and provide a template for other cancers with high heritable component.
