The title of Katharina’s project: Improved diagnostics and therapeutic leads for peroxisomal disorders

Katharina will focus on the improvement of diagnostic methods for patients with peroxisomal defects. She will identify biomarkers (in collaboration with MDiscoveries) for these defects and assess the in vitro effects and efficacy of different putative therapeutic approaches. This includes leads for novel therapeutic approaches that will emerge from other PhD projects in this ITN. Part of the research will be performed at the University of Exeter and MDiscoveries (Potsdam).

Supervisor: Dr. Hans R. Waterham (h.r.waterham@amc.uva.nl)

Co-Supervisor: Dr. Nicolas Schauer, MDiscoveries, Potsdam
