We are seeking clinicians (or scientists with access to relevant patient cases) to provide samples from patients with inherited genetic diseases for the disease component of the HipSci project. We request that samples are provided in groups of between 10 and 50 with related phenotypes, and that all samples already have the genetic defect identified (the aim is to support gene analysis rather than gene discovery), with typically multiple cases with defects in the same gene. We encourage clinicians/scientists with only small numbers of samples to form larger groups with others who can contribute similar cases.

If you wish to submit a proposal or have any questions please email hipsci-proposal@ebi.ac.uk Full Details can be found on the iPS cells for Rare disease cases: call for proposals page and in the Proposal PDF
