Welcome back Rafa (as a PhD student!)

img_8228The lab would all like to welcome back Rafa who is re-joining us as a PhD student following his extremely successful MRes project on Huntington’s disease. Rafa will be moving away from HD for his PhD studies and will now be working on CLN8 disease, one of the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses. The aim of his project is to phenotype cells from this disease in order to develop novel pharmaceutical screening assays for drug discovery.  We hope that this work will not only be useful for CLN8 disease but also for other NCLs and lysosomal diseases. Welcome back Rafa and all the best for the next 3-4 years!

This PhD project was made possible by funds from the Batten Disease Family Association and the Life Sciences Research Network Wales:
