In Memoriam: Dr. Jerry Schneider

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This past winter we lost a revolutionary in the cystinosis world, Dr. Jerry Schneider.

During his time at the National Institutes of Health, he began cystinosis research that would lead to the creation of cysteamine treatments many take today. He was a true pioneer and consummate advocate in the fight against cystinosis.

Bruce Barshop, Adam Jonas, William Gahl, and Jess Thoene published this warming tribute in honor of his life.
