Glycogen Storage Disease Program Fund

Leading pediatric endocrinologist and scientist, Dr. David A. Weinstein and his world-renowned Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD) Program is moving from Florida to the UConn School of Medicine and Connecticut Children's Medical Center in early 2017.

Weinstein's GSD Program, currently based at the University of Florida, is the largest clinical and research program of its kind in the world. Pediatric and adult patients living with the rare, genetic liver disease travel from across the U.S. and the globe for his and his team's expert care. Dr. Weinstein follows the largest number of GSD patients in the world caring for more than 500 patients traveling from 49 states and 45 countries.

The Glycogen Storage Disease Program Fund at UConn was created to support GSD research and program needs including the purchase of needed equipment and supplies, and more.

The GSD Program team is committed to being the leading center for GSD research and clinical care. It is through donations like yours that we are able to continue the growth of our program to develop better treatment options as well as a cure for this disease.
