Wilson’s Disease Special Interest Group (SIG) 

The Wilson’s Disease Special Interest Group (SIG) is the first SIG to be established by BASL. The SIG Lead is Dr Bill Griffiths of Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. The Wilson’s SIG comprises a variety of clinical and laboratory specialists from around the UK, Public Health England and patient representation from the Wilson’s Disease Support Group. Its aims are to foster closer collaboration for clinical and scientific research, provide a forum to discuss and disseminate best practice, and act as a stimulus towards Centres of Excellence for Wilson’s disease. The group has met twice thus far in December 2017 and June 2018. Reports from those meetings will be made available along with presentation slides. If anyone wishes to join the group please contact the BASL secretariat on Samantha@basl.org.uk.
