This project involves the development of a new model that can be used for testing treatments. Catherine will also be looking to see if the model can identify new disease markers and possible targets for treatments.
Researchers need more systems for finding and testing possible new treatments. Catherine hopes to show that this new model is a good system that will help to streamline the process of testing and validating new therapeutic approaches.
