Coen Ottenheijm receives EU consortium grant

Coen Ottenheijm receives an EU consortium grant together with 7 partners.

The project, entiteled 'Improved diagnostic output in large sarcomeric genes' brings to life a synergistic cooperation between clinicians, geneticists, pathologists, physiologists, biophysicists and patient advocacy organizations, and aims at improving the diagnostic pipeline for skeletal muscle disorders caused by mutations in large genes like TTN (titin) and NEB (nebulin). The overall goal is to design and validate new tools available to a larger community of clinicians and researchers working in this field, and to characterize in depth genotype-functional-phenotype correlations.
