Million Dollar Bike Ride grant for Dr. Sharon Kolk

Dr. Sharon Kolk received a grant from the Orphan Disease Center in partnership with patient organisation Love Never Sinks (Million Dollar Bike Ride).

She will focus on deciphering the role of HGprt in fore- and midbrain development in a human-derived brain organoid model for Lesch-Nyhan Disease (LND). The results will help us to understand the timing and functional anatomical consequences of HGprt deficiency in the human developing brain – as a prerequisite for future treatment development.
