About Dr. Henske

Elizabeth P. Henske, Director, Center for LAM Research and Clinical Care


The Henske Laboratory is focused on the genetics, cell biology and biochemistry of two tumor suppressor gene diseases: Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome (BHD).  Our goal is to eliminate tumor cells and LAM cells in individuals living with these diseases as well as individuals with the sporadic forms of LAM and chromophobe RCC.  Our mission is to translate research discoveries into improved clinical care, as quickly as possible, to improve the lives of those affected by these devastating diseases.
