We don't know what causes Sarcoidosis, but we are getting closer and closer. A part of that research is coming from genetic experts at 23andMe. The genetics company has worked with thousands of people to study their DNA -- and to drill down to see if there is a connection between our genes and whether we get Sarcoidosis. Their findings were presented at an FSR Townhall forum hosted by Sarc Fighter Podcast Host John Carlin. The panelists include:
C. Ann Scott- Woman of Color Patient Advisory Committee, Foundation For Sarcoidosis Research, Dr. Courtney Montgomery- Director of the Sarcoidosis Research Clinic at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Mary McGowan – Chief Executive Officer, Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, and Dr. Suyash Shringarpure – Senior Statistical Geneticist of 23andMe.
