The Progeria Research Foundation
This website is the homepage for the Progeria Research Foundation, the only non-profit organization in the world dedicated to research on progeria. The site gives a full description of the disease, information on the latest advances in research, details on how to sign up for a mailing list and support group, and various links to other valuable websites. This site is probably the most helpful site about progeria that is available on the internet.
Genetics Home Reference: Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome
This website is put out by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), so it is guaranteed to be accurate and up-to-date. It contains a complete but easy-to-understand summary of progeria, focusing particularly on the genetics of the disease. The most beneficial aspect of the website is that it contains many links to other helpful websites as well as educational resources and medical literature on the disease.
This website contains information about all federally- and privately-funded research on many different diseases and disorders. As of August 2005, one study looking at progeria is currently underway and looking for research subjects.
