Genetic Risk Factors and Corresponding Mechanisms Underlying Lipedema

By identifying the genes that cause lipedema, we can determine what physiological mechanisms can be therapeutically acted upon, and we can make predictions of an individual’s risk for lipedema. A better understanding of the pathways and mechanisms underlying lipedema can thus lead to improved prevention and treatment.This project is receiving funding from The Lipedema Foundation.
