Dr. Gwendalyn Randolph selected for new National Commission for Lymphatic Diseases

Gwendalyn Randolph, PhD, Emil R. Unanue Professor of Pathology and Immunology in the Division of Immunobiology, was chosen to be a member of the newly formed National Commission for Lymphatic Diseases. The Commission, which is slated for an inaugural meeting in December 2023, will be convened by NHLBI leadership. In 2022, Congress directed the NIH to establish the Commission. The Commission will support and facilitate advances in lymphatics science and its implementation into effective prevention and treatment interventions. The commission will pave the way for what is anticipated to be many lymphatic biology relevant research opportunities and clinical trials supported by multiple NIH institutes in the coming years.
