A recent discovery by scientists at OMRF could aid in the development of potential therapies for lymphedema.
Lymphedema is a disease characterized by dramatic and painful swelling in the limbs that often leads to infections.
OMRF researchers have broken new ground in understanding how the lymphatic system works.
OMRF hosted its semiannual meeting on Thursday.
OMRF has received a 5-year NIH grant to continue heart and blood research.
The new findings were published in the journal Genes & Development.
