Current project: A compound screen in a fly model for the North Sea Disease, a rare monoclonal progressive epilepsy caused by a mutation in the GOSR2 gene. With the fly model we aim to gain insights into the mechanism through which the disease is caused as well as provide new therapy options. This research is in large funded by the North Sea Disease patient organisation.
