Thesis: “Recombinant Adeno-associated virus as a therapeutic therapy for PLN R14DEL patients”

Read here the thesis of Sam Biermans, a Biomedical Sciences student at Utrecht University. Under the guidance of Dr. Niels Bovenschen, Sam Biermans wrote her thesis on the current developments in virus therapy for PLN patients. It is a very clear, in-depth, and informative thesis for those interested.

Her thesis mainly focuses on the adeno-associated virus; how does the virus normally work, and how can it be modified into a gene delivery vehicle. Then, it delves into the PLN R14del disease and how the recombinant AAV virus could potentially provide new therapies.
