Update on the work of the BAP1-interest group (BIG) consortium published

The BAP1-interest group (BIG) consortium (http://www.bap1.org/) was formed by Professor Nick Hayward and Dr Mohamed Abdel-Rahman as a way to put the minds of many international professionals together to work on research about the BAP1-Tumour Predisposition Syndrome (BAP1­-TPDS).  The Consortium recently published its first paper in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute reviewing BAP1­-TPDS families worldwide.

More information on the BAP1­-TPDS and the findings of the Consortium presented in this paper can now be found on the BAP1: a newly recognised melanoma gene and The BAP1-Interest Group (BIG) Consortium tabs respectively, under the Info for Patients menu.
