GRIP - Global Research Inventory Program

The Global Research Inventory Program (GRIP) is a global inventory of all research published on Loeys-Dietz syndrome.  An exciting feature of the GRIP project is the database of all of the medical professionals that have collaborated on the published research.  This database will be instrumental in ensuring that LDSF Canada will have a comprehensive and global reach with our  Early Investigator Impact Award– thus ensuring we reach the brightest minds around the world.
