The Center is supported in part by a grant from the National Institutes of Health as part of the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network. We are also supported in part by the American Porphyria Foundation's "Protect Our Future" program, which attracts and trains the next generation of doctors and future specialists in the field of porphyria.
