The FAM177A1 Research Fund has partnered with Dr. Clement Chow at the University of Utah to do a drug screen using fruit flies. Dr. Chow's team has created FAM177A1-deficient flies that are unhealthy and are screening the flies to see what FDA-approved drugs improve their health.




Watch the video below to learn more about the screen and see images from The Hawkins' family visit to the Chow Lab at Utah, where their oldest child happens to attend college.
