Louise Medaer holds a master’s degree in Fundamental and Translational Research from the KU Leuven university in Biomedical Sciences. She is a first-year PhD researcher in the laboratory for Vectorology and Gene Therapy where she completed her thesis on the rare, metabolomic storage disease, cystinosis. Currently, she is investigating the cellular role of cystinosin and the molecular mechanism of cystinosis myopathy. This research encompasses rescuing the cystinosis phenotype by employing viral vector technology.
