They will meet with Professor Vera Krymskaya in the first week of April and discussions will focus on new and exciting LAM research that has been in progress with the two labs.

The work involves T cells of the Immune System as well as further work on investigating the effectiveness of a molecule called V3 that may be helpful in slowing the growth of LAM cells in the lung.
