New Clinical Trial Finder Tool

The TS Alliance has partnered with Clinical Trial Connect to develop a user-friendly Clinical Trial Finder Tool to help individuals and families affected by TSC participate in relevant clinical trials. You can find the tool on our website here. Are you conducting a study involving patients with TSC that isn’t listed in the online tool? Contact Zoë Fuchs, TS Alliance Science Project Coordinator, at zfuchs@tsalliance.org.

TSC Biosamples Available at No Cost to Researchers

re you looking for samples from TSC patients to use in your lab? The TSC Biosample Repository has a growing collection of samples tied to phenotypic data. In most cases, we can ship these samples at no charge to the investigator. To date, we have shipped 749 samples for use in diverse projects, ranging from quantification of sphingolipids in plasma to investigating mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy.
