Where do your donations go? 2014 TDL Discovery Project
Patient DNA Sequencing to identify cause of heart defect.
(HLHS) = $700.00 per Patient. Goal is to include 100 patients in the study pool = $70,000.00
Prior TDL funds supported research that allowed U-M medical students to search global genetics data, resulting in the identification of the gene than when is defective - is the cause of certain congenital heart defects. The next step was to test this in developing hearts of Zebra fish. This proved that turning the identified gene on or off - directly impacted the development of the heart muscle. Our TDL dollars have helped the research team prove a theory and earned them both grant money and private donor dollars to further these research efforts.
