PPN Awards Grant to PANS/PANDAS Biomarker Study

PANDAS Physician Network (PPN) is proud to award Dr. Madeleine W. Cunningham, George Lynn Cross Research Professor and Presbyterian Health Foundation Presidential Professor, a research grant to identify one or more biomarkers for PANS/PANDAS (and Sydenham Chorea).

The goal of this research is to improve the diagnosis of PANS/PANDAS with as much accuracy as possible to confirm the diagnosis with biomarkers rather than by a diagnosis of exclusion. This, in turn, will ensure that children with this treatable disorder are identified and treated.

This grant is part of PPN’s ongoing effort to support research that shows significant promise in the identification, treatment and understanding of PANS/PANDAS.
