Successful presentations of the PoLiMeR research at the INFORM meeting!
PoLiMeR PhD students Siti Nurjanah (Universitätsklinikum Freiburg), Ligia Kiyuna and Christoff Odendaal (University Medical Center Groningen) have successfully presented their research at the annual INFORM meeting, which is this year held in Freiburg. The INFORM network brings together clinicians, laboratory researchers, and patient organisations focusing on inherited fatty-acid oxidation disorders. Siti Nurjanah was selected for an oral presentation of her research into triheptanoin supplementation, a novel and promising treatment for long-chain fatty-acid oxidation disorders. Christoff Odendaal won a poster prize for his personalised computational modelling of symptomatic and asymptomatic patients with the same genetic defect. Ligia Kiyuna also won a poster prize for her investigations into alternative nutrient utilisation by the different organs of the body, when compensating for a fatty-acid oxidation disorder. Congratulations!
