VHL, BHD and HLRCC Research

VHL UK/Ireland aims to raise funds for key research into the disease and similar genetic conditions.

This page introduces the key researchers who are candidates to receive funding from the VHL UK/Ireland charity raised by donations and fundraising activities. It is not always realised that research into our conditions can have far-reaching benefit into the wider community. A good example is understanding cell metabolism pathways.

At the moment all research activity into the genetic conditions supported by us is conducted in mainland UK. However if you are aware of any other suitable research activity please email us.

The identification of Fumarate Hydratase (FH) gene being responsible for HLRCC is widely referenced in Germline mutations in FH predispose to dominantly inherited uterine fibroids, skin leiomyomata and papillary renal cell cancer (Tomlinson IP et al., 2002 )
