  • Evaluation of a novel drug combination treatment for nephropathic cystinosis in a new cystinotic rat model.

    Cystinosis is a rare disease that results in the build-up of cystine in all cells of the body. Cystine is a protein building block and normally the excess is moved out of cells. In cystinosis the transporter for cystine does not work and cystine builds up inside the cells and forms crystals which cause damage to all organs and...

  • Ancient genomics and the Atlantic burden

    WT Scheme: Investigator Award in Science.

    Massive human genome resequencing projects are in train to further the understanding of the genetic contributions to disease. However these offer a limited view of genome genealogies, variant history and past selection, all of which are instrument to the models underpinning genomic...

  • Staphylococcus aureus induced immunosuppressive memory: Consequences for bug and for host

    WT Scheme: Investigator Award in Science.

    Antimicrobial resistance by Staphylococcus aureus is a global epidemic. New approaches based on induction of immune responses that control/prevent S. aureus infection, are required. This necessitates a thorough understanding of the unique relationship cultivated by S. aureus with the...
