Much FOP research takes place at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where a research laboratory devoted to FOP exists. The FOP Research Laboratory, created in 1992, is led by Frederick Kaplan, M.D., and Eileen Shore, Ph.D., with the dedicated research team including three principal investigators with many post-doctoral fellows, scientists, students and staff.
This core team collaborates with physicians and scientists worldwide to develop treatments and – someday – a cure for FOP.
The FOP Research Lab’s seminal work has been highlighted in many prestigious medical publications, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Nature Genetics, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Clinical Orthopaedics, and The Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.
