Research into Haemochromatosis
Scientific research relevant it haemochromatosis is ongoing worldwide, and papers reporting findings are published in specialist medical journals. While these are written primarily for professionals and are not easy reading for lay persons, an up to date listing of recent papers can be found through Google Scholar here www.goo.gl/8ZE1U
The Society works with the Scientific Community to support Research into Haemochromatosis, and provides grants for iron overload research or basic scientific issues that affect patients with haemochromatosis or other iron overload disorders. Projects that investigate the prevalence and penetrance of haemochromatosis will also be considered. Grant proposals are accepted at anytime, all will be peer- reviewed and a decision is usually made at a quarterly Directors' meeting.
