Energizing molecular dance
J.M. de Winter, PhD, VUMC

Nemaline myopathy type 6 (NEM6) is a congenital myopathy that affects both skeletal and cardiac muscle. Due to disturbed energy supply, muscle cannot contract properly. Josine will use novel infrastructure and NEM6 zebrafish models to elucidate NEM6 pathomechanisms and screen for drugs that improve energy supply and muscle function.
