Funding for research

Money is needed to do the research we have done and will perform in the (near) future. Happily we can anounce and thank different companies; funding organisations and parent organisations for their funding for the exon skipping group.
 
 

Duchenne Parent Project

Projects:
* Improving the 2’-O-methyl phosphorothioate induced exon skipping for Duchenne through chemical modification and/or a combination with added components: summary of the project (in Dutch)
* Clarifying the role and therapeutic effect of myostatin/ TGF-β receptors: summary of the project (in Dutch)
* Preparing for double exon skipping therapy
* Validating a mouse model to test human specific antisense oligonucleotides
* In-depth characterisation of brain pathology in mice lacking one or multiple brain dystrophin isoforms
