Discover novel paradigms for effective treatment of patientsThe ultimate goal of this group is to discover novel paradigms for effective treatment of patients. Our strategy starts with disease gene discovery followed by functional studies to understand cellular pathogenesis. The main focus is polycystic liver disease, a rare inherited liver disorder.
Our research aims are to improve the quality of life of patients with inherited polycystic liver disease.
- We aim to design instruments in order to map/assess quality of life
- We explore avenues to improve medical and non-medical treatment options for these patients
- We aim to build a cell model that serves to test medical options in polycystic liver disease
