Collaborating on Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Familial Hypercholesterolemia is one of the most prevalent, underdiagnosed, but treatable genetic disorder which is estimated to affect one in every 250 individuals in the general population. As part of the GUaRDIAN initiative, we look forward to establishing research collaborations across Medical Colleges across the country to enable clinicians with the knowledgebase as well as molecular tools to screen / diagnose the disease and effectively treat patients.

We invite you and your Department/Institute to be part of this ongoing collaborative effort on the Genetic Landscape of Familial Hypercholesterolemia in India.

To join our network, please email Dr Sridhar Sivasubbu at
