The ITEDS BioBank continues to accept TED related orbital and eyelid tissues.
We are actively seeking surgeons in the US to contribute to the Bank, as well as researchers in the US who may wish to utilize these banked tissues. (It is very difficult to transport these specimens into or out of the US, hence the geographic limitations.) If you are performing surgery on patients with TED, please strongly consider becoming involved in this project. The Bank has had limited submissions over the past 1.5 years due to COVID-19, but we are now enthusiastic to resume Bank recruiting and activity.
For more information please contact Suzanne Freitag, MD (Suzanne_Freitag@meei.harvard.edu)
