Meet the Experts

Meet the Experts is a virtual event held every 2-3 months to bring together Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHD) experts and the BHD community. Genetic counsellors, clinicians and scientists from around the world share their knowledge and answer your questions about BHD.

Our last event was with Dr Arjan Houweling who discussed his work on BHD and the discovery of two conditions with similar symptoms to BHD. 

Dr Houweling is a Clinical Geneticist at Amsterdam UMC in The Netherlands. He has been a member of a BHD research group for over 10 years and their diagnostic lab has diagnosed over 400 people with BHD. 

Details about the next event will be available soon
