Research and Clinical Trials Team
Roger L. Kaspar, Chair
The purpose of this team is to focus specifically on clinical trial development and assist one another in moving lab research forward to delivery to patients. The team membership fluctuates depending on specific needs and focus. Outside consultants are often involved with IPCC members where special expertise is needed. Many IPCC researchers have ongoing projects to develop therapeutics for PC. These are often featured at the annual IPCC meetings.
Quarterly Webmeeting and Annual IPCC Meeting
Formed in 2004, the IPCC welcomes all scientists and physicians interested in collaborative efforts to develop and deliver effective treatments for PC and related disorders.
Leadership in PC Research
In 2004 Sancy Leachman, a dermatologist at the University of Utah at that time, suggested an International PC Consortium (IPCC). Sponsored by PC Project, the registry now has more than 150 participants. All are welcome to join in collaborative research efforts, genetic discoveries and patient care.
In this 2011 video, Sancy Leachman describes how two top researchers were recruited for the IPCC
Both Irwin McLean and Roger Kaspar continue to collaborate and lead research efforts for PC.
We are so grateful for the experts working closely with us -- without the support and direction of the IPCC members we would make no progress. We invite you to participate in this unique community with others pledged to work together to make a difference. Thank you!
