The European Working Group on Gaucher disease (EWGGD) was launched as an affiliate of the European Study Group on Lysosomal Diseases (ESGLD). At the ESGLD meeting in Delphi in 1993, the founding of the Group was proposed by Prof. Dr. J.M. Tager, professor of Biochemistry and Prof. dr. R. Goudsmit, professor of Haematology and supported by the president of the ESGLD, Prof. K. von Figura.

The EWGGD has officially been registered on February 23, 2012, in the Netherlands. Click here for the constitution.
