What does critical political economy mean for Organisation Studies? Hasselt University
From variome to phenome: study of genetic defects underlying the heritable connective tissue disorder Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and their pathogenic consequences on extracellular matrix organisation and function Ghent University
In some patients with Ehlers Danlos syndrome (EDS), a clinical, molecular and pathogenic overlap is seen with patients suffering from inherited myopathies. This research aims to study this overlap and the biological consequences of defects in the different molecules that are associated with these disorders.
