Dr Jerry Schneider – RIP

By | 2022-02-01

Cystinosis Network Europe was deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of Dr Jerry Schneider.  Dr Schneider was a pioneer and friend to the cystinosis community, having dedicated his career to the identification and understanding of this ultra-rare disease.  He started his career in the National Institutes of Health (US), and was a founding member and ultimately Professor of Pediatrics at UCSD School of Medicine from 1970-2011.  Dr Schneider’s work lead to the development of cysteamine treatment which is used by many of our community.

We offer our sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr Schneider.
