Our team

PID UK has been set up by the charity Genetic Disorders UK (GDUK) with a grant from Jeans for Genes Day 2012.

At present, PID UK is managed and run by staff at GDUK. However, we hope that as PID UK raises more funds, we will be able to grow our team by employing another dedicated member of staff to help us build the organisation.
