Nemaline Myopathy group

Folkhälsan Research Center

Our mission

Our mission is to identify the genes and mutations causing the different subtypes of NM and related disorders. We aim to elucidate the pathogenetic mechanisms leading from mutation to disorder, and to develop and establish diagnostic molecular biological methods for these disorders to help pave the way for future therapies. In addition, we want to increase the knowledge on the effects of nutrition on disease severity and functioning in daily life.
