Call for international research projects against Epidermolysis Bullosa (DEBRA International)

Monday 21 March 2016

DEBRA International is a worldwide network of national groups working for patients suffering from epidermolysis bullosa.
Research priorities of this call for projects are:

  • Improving our understanding of the biology and genetics of all forms of EB, as better understanding can lead to new approaches to diagnose and treat EB
  • Working towards the development of therapies (including possible gene-therapies, cell-therapies, drug therapies or protein therapies)
  • Understanding the nature of wound healing and the development of skin cancer in EB, and seek to develop better treatments and prevention strategies
  • Supporting clinical care research to improve the management of EB through symptom relief

The deadline for submission is 1 April 2016.
