PHTS research tools

As a charitable organisation, our mission is to fund and facilitate research that will lead to better treatments and improved outcomes for PTEN hamartoma tumour syndrome (PHTS).

To do this, the Foundation works alongside clinicians and researchers, amongst others, to support the characterisation and generation of PHTS-related research tools. We recognise that the availability of, and access to, relevant research tools and resources are critical enablers to both support and accelerate research into PHTS and, ultimately, improve to the lives of people living with PHTS.

To support the PHTS research community, and to help foster collaboration between researchers with similar interests, we have collated here information on selected clinical and pre-clinical research tools and resources with a specific focus on PHTS (the "Content"). For more information and limitation of the use of the information provided, please see below. 

Where funding has been provided by PTEN Research, this has been indicated.

If you have any queries about the work we have funded or want us to consider adding a resource you have generated or are aware of, please contact us at

This resource will be regularly updated as new information becomes available.
