💚CDG: A Community of HOPE!💚
Paola de Haas is one of the young faces of CDG Research 👩🔬 at the Radboud university medical center (Nijmegen, Netherlands). She shares that she dedicates her work to develop CDG models and study immunology in CDG. Currently, she is working with a zebrafish CDG model to understand the mechanisms behind the immune issues observed in CDG patients. With this work, she is contributing to what she thinks is the main need in CDG research: to build as much knowledge as possible that in the future can be translated into therapeutic options.
She gives us HOPE!💚
